The House of Representatives has urged the National Boundary Commission to demarcate the boundary between Nasarawa and Benue states with an immediate effect in a bid to curb incessant crises among border communities in the two states.

In an adopted motion sponsored by Abubakar Nalaraba, the House has mandated the Committee on Special Duties to convene a meeting of stakeholders for the boundary adjustment and demarcation.

Presenting the motion, Nalaraba stated that over the years, due to lack of clearly defined boundary demarcation between the communities of Awe, Doma and Keana in Nasarawa State and Guma and Makurdi in Benue State has continued to bring complex security and socio-economic problems to these communities.

He said before the year 1910, River Benue was the natural historical boundary line between Nasarawa State and Benue State and any land from the north bank of the River Benue was in Keana as well as Awe and Doma.
