Herdsmen Set Governor Ortom’s Rice Farm Ablaze by dre11(m): 1:05pm On Dec 31, 2018

Over 20,000 hectares of rice farm belonging to Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom have been set ablaze by suspected herdsmen in Tse-Adorogo, Mbabeagh, Nzorov, Guma Local Government Area.

In a telephone interview with The Nation, the governor said he had not harvested his rice farm, which is incorporated under Oracle Business Limited, before the suspected herdsmen set it ablaze.

Orace Farms, which started when the governor was the Chairman of Guma Local Government Area, is into massive rice and soybeans cultivation.

It was learnt that this was the fourth time Ortom’s farms had been attacked.

When he was Minster of State in former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, suspected herdsmen attacked his Oracle Farm on Naka Road at gunpoint and stole 30 cows.

The herdsmen struck again in 2014 at his Tse- Adorogo, Mbabeagh country home and set his rice farm and house ablaze.

When he became governor in 2015, herdsmen again set ablaze his rice farm in 2016 and 2017.

The governor expressed concern that herdsmen again destroyed crops in the state.

He reiterated his called for ranching of animals, saying there is no more land for anyone to feed their cattle in the name of grazing.

“I said ranching is the international best practice for animal husbandry. But if anyone has an alternative method, let him bring it to the table,” he said.

Ortom urged youths not to take the law into their hands but report to security agencies if any cattle encroached on farm lands in any part of the state.

The governor told The Nation that he would officially visit the rice farm tomorrow to assess the damage done to it.

It seems there are no criminals in Middle belt now; cos every evil act is attributed to the political herdsmen.

Something is obviously emboldening these assailants from Libya or Mali to perpetrate crimes of such magnitudes.

I wish the Police could be motivated to also lay a siege for these bandits in Benue and Zamfara like they are doing somewhere now in Abuja

The herdsmen endorsed Buhari as their candidate a few days ago.

Just watch and see how both the political IG and other security agencies would find it difficult to investigate, talk less of bringing the vocal killers and arsonists to justice.

Anyway what can he do since Buhari has asked the affected people to either "live in peace" with their killer "neighbours", or give up their "ancestral lands" if that would guarantee their safety.

There was a country.

Most reporting of herdsmen come from people who are the victims and witnesses, why don't you go there and physically verify otherwise!

The victims of fulani herdsmen know who the attackers are since they have lived side by side these people until the "troubles" started.

Do not rubbish the demise of others for your own narrow minded idiocy!

The sacred ones that can't be touched have struck again. Well they recently endorse Buhari to continue so that means protection is assured.
Ortom sorry, some days are like that. Lick your wound and move on, after all the state security personnel is not under your control.

Shameful... Because he refused to sacrifice his people??

Has anyone noticed that before the issue of elections started and rampant killings stopped, almost all the states where there was/is fulani killings is always a state governed by APC governor.

Immediately Ortom switched to PDP the killing in his state stopped.

Are you thinking what we're thinking?

Big lie. Nothing like herdsmen there.
There are about a million Benue people that will set Ortom's farm ablaze if given the chance.
Ortom is owing up to a year's salary, what do you expect?
