The Plateau State Governor, Mr. Solomon Lalong, has apologised for his comments on the killings by herdsmen in Benue State. Lalong, in an interview with newsmen on Saturday said his statement on anti grazing law was misquoted as he condoled with his Benue counterpart, Governor Samuel Ortom on killings in the state. Recall that Lalong, on Thursday said that he warned Ortom, against implementing the state anti-grazing law recently passed into law.
Lalong said, “I must say that I humbly apologise for my comments. “My comments generated a lot of social media write-ups; I apologise for that because neither the argument for nor against helps the matter because it involves lives. “I was quoted out of context, argument for or against on the media is not necessary. “Plateau is not fighting Benue state; we still remain brothers and sisters; I extend my prayers to them.”
