Benue State government has suspended three traditional rulers over their alleged roles in the prolonged crisis between Shitile and Ikyurav people of Katsina-Ala Local Government Area.

Those suspended are Tivlumun Ubugh, Mue Ter Chongo, and Chief Ayoleve Ornguga, Mue Ter Ipusu as well as the District Head of Mbacher, Chief Luke Atomigba. The suspension of the chiefs followed the recommendation of
the Benue State Security Council after its emergency meeting in Makurdi yesterday.

Governor Samuel Ortom recounted the council’s resolutions during a marathon meeting with stakeholders from the local council held yesterday. He stated that the traditional rulers had neglected their duties and exhibited nonchalance towards efforts aimed at resolving the crisis.

The governor noted that the traditional rulers had instead resorted to fuelling the crisis based on vested interests, thereby contravening the code of conduct enshrined in the Local Government and Chieftaincy Law of the state.

The affected traditional rulers are to face a panel to be constituted by the Tor Tiv to investigate them and determine appropriate sanctions.

According to the governor, the Council also directed that all the District Heads from the area who declined an invitation to attend a security meeting with Tor Sankera, Chief Abu King Shuluwa, would be queried to explain why disciplinary actions should not be taken against them.

He said the Council also warned the Tor Sankera to be a father to all his subjects and eschew sentiments and personal interest, pointing out that he should work with all his subjects to ensure peace in his domain.
