Benue Under my Watch Won’t Succumb to Fulani Jihadists – Ortom


The Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has vowed not succumb to attacks by terrorists whether they are jihadists or militia herders whose sole target is occupation of the state and destruction of lives and property.

Ortom stated this while addressing journalists at the scene of reported herder attack in Agboughul community of Makurdi Local Government Area where three people were killed and three others injured.

The gruesome attack on yet another community in Makurdi local government area of the nation’s food basket is the third in very quick succession.

This time a blind man Elder Nyikyor,a barrister Moses Udam and his wife were casualties.

A worrisome development that left the chief security officer of the State Governor Samuel Ortom along with security chiefs and representatives deeply concerned.

This attack is coming barely four days after a similar one that claimed 4 lives in Tse-Angbande Makurdi local council.

Fear is gradually engulfing other communities who wonder whether this is just the beginning of a coordinated series of attacks on different communities.
