In a bid to tackle insecurity in Benue State, governor Samuel Ortom, Minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs, George Akume and Senator Gabriel Suswam may have buried their political differences to form a formidable force against insecurity in the State.

This came to fore on Monday as the former governors who had been arch political foes, particularly George Akume were in Benue peoples House, Makurdi to meet with governor Samuel Ortom.
