Senator Mark was not alone, as he had the likes of Comrade Abba Moro, Nigeria’s former interior minister, Honourable Ezekiel Adaji, a member of the House of Representatives, from Ohimini/Otukpo federal constituency, security personnels, journalists, as well as faithful party supporters in his entourage.

However, the former Senate president visited the communities totally destroyed by the Fulani crisis like: Aila, Akwu, Okokolo, Adagbo, Akwu, Ogboju and Odugbeho. Afterwards, Senator Mark gave words of assurance, that normalcy will return to the communities.
