The governor, who made the condemnation yesterday in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on media and publicity, Ahmed Tukur and made available to newsmen, called for increased surveillance along boarder communities by security agencies and the public to avoid the spread of the attack to neighboring communities and states.
He averred that the loss of lives and property of every Nigerian should be of concern to everyone, especially as the next door neighbors to Benue state.
Al-Makura appealed to the warring parties and individuals to desist from killings and destruction of properties in times of disagreements, but to seek dialogue and constitutional means of resolving differences.
Al-Makura said that as neighbors to Benue state, the people and Government of Nasarawa State share in their grief and warned such perpetrators to steer clear of the state.
It would be recalled that some communities in Logo local government area of Benue State have suffered series of attacks by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in recent times.
