“If I can’t go to the farm as governor with entire security around me then who else can go to the farm? You can imagine the pains that we have here in Benue State.”

WITHIN NIGERIA recall that armed men suspected to be herdsmen attacked Ortom’s convoy on Saturday at Tyo Mu along Makurdi-Gboko road while on a visit to a farm.

The governor said the armed men, numbering about 15, trailed his convoy to the bank where he was on foot with his security details to inspect a farm and opened fire on them.

Ortom praised his security details “who were just about six” for responding quickly to the attackers and repelling the armed men promptly before providing cover for him to return to safety.

A group identified as Fulani Nationality Movement, FUNAM, claimed responsibility for the Saturday’s attack on Governor Ortom, stating that it was a case of vengeance for destroying “the Fulani values and inheritance” and his stand against open grazing.
