Gunmen attack Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom’s convoy

Governor of Benue Ortom

Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen attacked the convoy of the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom today March 20.

Governor Ortom’s convoy was moving at Tyo Mu along Makurdi/Gboko road in Makurdi Local Government Area of the state when it was attacked.

Briefing journalists, the governor who described the gunmen as ‘herdsmen’, said about 15 of the attackers trailed him to the river bank where he was on foot. He said he was saved by his security details who worked so hard to protect him and repelled the attack.

“My lawyer is going to make a petition against the leadership of MACBAN because they came out to target me and behind the scene they are planning to eliminate me on my own land.

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.

I appreciate the security personnel attached to me they were able to repel them and they could not have access to me” he said.

He said troops of Operation Whirl Stroke, the police, and DSS have been mobilized to the forest between Tyo-Mu and Abinse where the armed herdsmen are camped to comb the area and get them arrested.
