The Executive Chairman, Konshisha Local Government Area of Benue State, Hon. James Jirgba says Military Authorities gave conditions they said must be fulfilled by the Council under his leadership before military officers will be withdrawn from the area.
Hon. Jirgba makes it known that Konshisha Local Government Council is making assiduous efforts to recover the militiary arms allegedly seized by suspected bandits in Konshisha which reportedly led to unfortunate loss of lives and destruction of property by the Nigerian Army in search of their weapons.
The Chairman states that he is aware of his people’s plight and their panic over militiary presence at Awajir community within Konshisha Local Government even though there has been a ceasefire since Friday, 8th April, 2021 and much progress has been recorded in their endeavour to meet up the conditions.
Hon. Jirgba sympathizes with victims of the military operation and assures that he and the stakeholders in Konshisha are working round the clock to ensure that peace returns and the displaced persons relocate to their various homes.
The conditions given by the Nigerian Army for the withdrawal of their men from Konshisha Local Government include recovery of the alleged seized weapons and the arrest of suspected killers.
