History of Benue State

Created on 3 February, 1976, Benue state was one of the seven new states created by the military administration headed by late General Murtala Muhammed. This increased the number of states in Nigeria from twelve to nineteen. The name, Benue, was derived from the River Benue which is the second largest river in Nigeria and the most outstanding geographic feature in the state.

At creation, the state comprised three local governments in the Tiv-speaking areas, namely Gboko, Katsina-ala, and Makurdi; one (Otukpo) in the Idoma-speaking areas and three (Ankpa, Idah and Dekina) in the Igala-speaking areas, which were excised from Kwara state. With the creation however of more states and local governments in 1991, the Igala-speaking Local Governments were excised to form part of the present Kogi state. Presently, Benue has twenty three local governments. The Tiv-speaking area has fourteen while the Idoma-Igede area have nine.
