President Muhammadu Buhari said he is not aware that Police chief, Ibrahim Idris did not heed his instruction to relocate to Benue state.

"I can not overlook the killings in Benue or any other part of Nigeria".

Armed security personnel were seen deployed to strategic areas in Makurdi while others were seen patrolling streets in armoured tanks and vehicles as part of measures to boost up security in the state.

President Buhari was surprised that Idris breached his order.

Speaking earlier, Governor Samuel Ortom appealed to the President to upgrade the ongoing military exercise in the state tagged "Ayem Akpatema", to a wider operation to effectively curb herdsmen attacks. I can not do that.

Ortom expressed the hope during the handover of the Abagana Internally Displaced Persons Camp at Agan, by the Presidential Committee on Flood and Rehabilitation to the state government.

He said 60 percent of the IDPs were sadly children who ordinarily should have been in school.

The Broncos are coming off a 5-11 season, one in which they struggled in large part due to their lack of competent quarterbacking. Their inconsistent play on both the offensive line and at quarterback have been big reasons why they've sat out the postseason.

The governor stated the visit might also signal a complete end to the violent attacks on Benue communities by marauding herdsmen.

It is, however, not clear if the birthday get-together took place in Abuja or Nasarawa. "People would believe me, but I will be disloyal if I do that".

According to the release, the president will have an interactive session with selected Benue indigenes and visit the IDP camp via helicopter.

Some protesting youths, who had stormed the venue to register their grievances over incessant killings in the state, were sent away by security men, while their placards were seized.

He disclosed that he even shared the IGP's security report on the Benue crisis with Senators George Akume and Barnabas Gemade from the state.

About 30 correspondents from various media organisations are in the state, but only seven handpicked media organisations were allowed to cover the President's visit.

Implementing the law has been controversial as the herdsmen have vowed to resist it.
