ORTOM



Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State says indigenes of his state were fighting against terrorists, killer herdsmen as well as criminality and not against any Fulani as some Nigerian People believe.
Ortom made the clarification on Monday in Makurdi, while briefing journalists on the state of insecurity in Benue.
“We are not against any tribe, especially the Fulani people, but rather against terrorists, killer herdsmen, bandits, kidnappers and all types of criminals within the state.
“We are actively supporting our security agencies to ensure that all remaining pockets of banditry, kidnappings among others, are mitigated,” he added.
The governor said for any democracy to thrive, there must be enabling laws to support the same, adding that his administration had in that regard domesticated and enacted more than 20 laws since 2015.
He, in spite of that, commended President Mohammadu Buhari for deploying security personnel to handle the state’s security challenges, noting that because of that, Benue was enjoying relative peace at the moment.
