Mr Terver Akase, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, has stated that the law should be allowed to take its full course in the arrest of the state commandant of livestock guard, Aliyu Tershaku.
Tershaku, who is the leader of livestock guard saddled with the responsibility of enforcing the new anti-open grazing law in the state, was arrested last Friday by the Joint Task Force in Makurdi, over allegation of Boko-Haram membership and his link to recent killings in the state.
Mr Akase, who reaffirmed the leadership style of governor Ortom said that the governor will not shield anyone suspected to have committed a crime.
While speaking on the arrest of Tershaku in Makurdi, Ortom’s CPS told newsmen in the state that it was the constitutional mandate of security agencies to arrest anyone suspected to have violated the law.
Akase said: “the law would take its course in the investigation of Teshaku.
“The decision of Governor Samuel Ortom to uphold justice while intensifying the fight against crime in the state remain untainted.”
