Great numb| of village women at Ortese, Native of Guma Local Government Area in Benue State tripped out today to register their disaffection in the ways Governor Hyacinth Alia of the state has handled the insecurity menace battling the state since he was sworn in.

The state government had ordered the traditional rulers in the area to mediate with the protesting women, but they turned down all forms of approaches from the traditional rulers.
