Buhari met with the herdsmen association Miyetti Allah, and appealed with the people in the state to apply restraint. I can not do that.

In a surprise, Buhari had said: "I'm not aware that the I-G did not spend 24 hours in the state as directed by me, I am getting to know in this meeting". He, however, noted that a collective effort is required to maintain peace and security.

Apart from journalists, invited stakeholders were turned back at the third gate of the Government House where security, mainly operatives of the Department of State Services, checked the names of guests against a list they clutched jealously.

"What I did was to call him and give him the directive".

He stated further that the burial will now take place next week Thursday.

Ortom expressed the hope during the handover of the Abagana Internally Displaced Persons Camp at Agan, by the Presidential Committee on Flood and Rehabilitation to the state government.

President Buhari was surprised that Idris breached his order.

The Tor Tiv, Professor James Ayatse, who also spoke at the event urged President Buhari to re-consider the redesigning of the country's security architecture with the states and traditional rulers having a role to play.

He appealed for the construction of drainages and dredging of river Benue as well as dualization of makurdi Gboko road to boost economic activities in the state.

Former governor of the state and now a senator George Akume conveyed his peoples bitterness against the president at a town hall meeting the president had with the communities.

They also advised the president not to see Governor Ortom as an enemy who is bent on executing a law that is unfriendly to Fulani herdsmen, but as a patriotic leader who is carrying out the wishes of his people.
