Obasanjo condemns burning of farm in Benue

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has described as a bad development, the burning of his 2,420 hectares of land farm at Howe in Aliade area of Gwer East Local Government of Benue State, at the weekend.

Some hoodlums were said to have over the weekend set on fire the former President's mango plantation at Howe, Gwer East Local Government Area of Benue State.

In a release by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, on Tuesday, Obasanjo said the local and state governments, including the security agencies in the State have taken up the issue, with a view to fishing out the perpetrators and  prosecution.

The former President thanked those who had called him to identify with him on the incident, stressing that, despite the huge loss on the farm land as a result of the inferno, there was death recorded, and this is gladdening to note.
