Al-Makura Vows To Prosecute Ombatse Militia

Governor Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa State on Thursday promised to ensure the prosecution of members of the Ombatse militia and their sponsors over the killings of innocent of lives and destruction of property in the state.



    Al-Makura gave the assurance in Lafia while briefing newsmen, promising that his government will not to relent until justice is done.

    “We will go to the logical conclusion in bringing the culprits to book. We will go through the right process and make sure whoever is involved, even if you have immunity, we will wait for the period of the immunity to expire and then we will get back to you,” he said.

    The governor said that the most challenging task before him is how to deal with those who have perpetrated killings in the state to distablise his government.

    “How I stand up to Ombatse is my biggest challenge and no matter how they run, no matter how highly placed is their leaders, I most bring them to book. If that is the only thing I will do, I will do it so that I can give my people some kind of sense of peace, sense of protection and sense of security,” Al-makura vowed.
