Otukpo is not under Fulani attack says George Alli.

Hon George Alli, the chairman of Otukpo local government council in Benue state has told IPN News in a phone conversation that the news of a Fulani herdsmen attack in Otukpo is fake news.

According to him, when he was alerted to the news, he immediately swung into action, spoke with the various security agencies, leaders of the various vigilante groups, and communities to ascertain the veracity of the story, who told him there was no such attack anywhere in Otukpo.

To make sure nothing was amiss, he also mobilized the military, the DSS and the police to search the farm areas of the rural parts of Otukpo and came up with nothing.

As a result of the foregoing, he advised social media users to verify information before sharing in order not to add to the searing tension already existing in the people.
