Following recent attacks on some Communities in Benue State, the Idoma Traditional Council will be leading a high-powered Stakeholders delegation to the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) to engage him on the dire security needs of the people for onward transmission to President Muhammadu Buhari.
This followed a meeting of the Och’idoma, Agaba-idu, Elaigwu Odogbo Obagaji John, with Prominent Sons and Daughters of Idoma Land, where the decision to engage the Federal Government, among other resolutions, was reached.
In a Statement by Chief Palace Scribe and Media Aide to the OCH’IDOMA, Onuminya Odoba said efforts were underway to engage the Youths and the Communities affected, persuading them not to take Laws into their hands but to always stay vigilant for “odd faces and strange movements” within their communities, and to report same to relevant Authorities.
Other resolutions reached at the meeting, according to the statement, include, establishment of an Idoma Development, Economic and Security Committee to advocate the Idoma cause from an organic and organised perspective, and to suspend and investigate any chief indicted in shady dealings with marauders and militias.
