Former President Olusegun Obasanjo wants leaders in the country to do whatever is necessary to end the circle of killings going on across the nation.
Chief Obasanjo made the call on Saturday in Makurdi when he visited Governor Samuel Ortom to commiserate with him over the attacks on Benue communities in which several people have lost their lives.
The Former President went to the grave side where seventy three persons were given mass burial to lay wreath on their tombs.
Obasanjo said that he laid the wreath to sufficiently express his sorrow, empathy and sympathy to the families that lost their loved ones, the governor and people of the state and Nigerians.
Chief Obasanjo said he was particularly alarmed to learn that after the mass burial of the seventy three persons who were killed on New Year’s day, more than eighty others have been killed across the state.
He further explained that investment and development cannot take place in a chaotic atmosphere because investors would be unwilling to invest in such places.
He commended the doggedness of Governor Samuel Ortom in finding a solution to the crisis and urged him not to relent in his efforts.
