Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has once again called for the establishment of State Police in the Country.
Governor Ortom was addressing newsmen yesterday at the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi on measures taken by his administration to stop killings in the State.
According to him, the call was followed by the fact that as the Chief Security Officer of the state, he does not have the authority backing him to order the police or soldiers to take certain actions.
The Governor maintained that the State has Vigilante Group and Livestock Guard, who were mostly unarmed retired security Personnel.
Governor Ortom said, “State Police would greatly complement efforts of the Federal security agencies in nipping the lingering security challenge in the bud.”
The Governor was of the opinion that if established, officers of the State Police would be adequately trained and equipped to have the capacity to combat any security challenge.
He said the State Government would also address other deficiencies conventional security agencies faced such as funding, staff strength, capacity and equipment, assuring the Federal Government Agencies of his readiness to sustain support to them in that regard
