Managing director, Benue Investment and Property Company Limited (BIPC), Jack Mulya, has visited the Abaji Community in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of Benue State, who recently experienced communal crisis that rendered many homeless and affected business activities.
Recall that few days ago unknown gunmen stormed the village market shooting at random, killing and destroying properties worth millions of naira.
Mulya, who condoled with the community, expressed worry over the incidence, lamenting that Governor Samuel Ortom was saddened about the recent attack on the community and had since then held several meetings with both security agencies and leaders of Shiite people to proffer ways of bringing peace and stability to the land.
He added that the governor is working tirelessly in ensuring lasting solution to the recent security challenges in the area and other parts of the state.
The MD emphasised that there can be no development in the community if there is no peace, pointing out road construction projects, schools and business activities that have been halted as a result of this mayhem.
“If there is no peace on the land, contractors and investors cannot come and there will be no development”. He stated.
The BIPC boss urged the youths in the area to eschew their differences and avoid violence, stressing that whatever maybe happening now will surely affect the future of our children.
