Governor Ortom Confirms Attack On His Convoy By Herdsmen. PDP, Reno Omokri React by fergie0o1: 3:58pm On Mar 20
It was reported earlier that the convoy of Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue was attacked along Tyomu community in Makurdi Local Government Area of the State on Saturday.

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has confirmed the attack on him by suspected militia herdsmen today on his farm at Tyo-mu, along Makurdi – Gboko road.

Governor Ortom while briefing journalists at the Benue Peoples House after the incidence said as he was inspecting the farm, the militia herders, who dressed in black and had ambushed him and his security men, opened fire.

He said it took the swift response of his security aides to repel the attack, while he ran for a long distance to escape unhurt.

The Governor lamented that the attack came a few days after the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore held a meeting in Yola and singled him out as a thorn in their flesh who must be eliminated, pointing out that he received intelligence to that effect.

Governor Ortom said his life is in the hands of God and no Fulani militia has the power to take it without God’s permission, noting that as many times as they try, they would continue to fail.

He stated that the ranching law of the State will not be repealed for any reason, stressing that no intimidation could force his administration to reverse the decision of Benue people against open grazing.

The Governor said he would send a petition to the President and security chiefs against Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore as allowing their leadership to walk freely with security personnel attached to them was not in the best interest of the country.

PDP reacts;

@OfficialPDPNig expresses shock at the attack on Benue State @GovSamuelOrtom by alleged herdsmen.

It is worrisome that this attack is coming on the heels of passionate demands by Dr. Ortom that FG live up to its responsibility on the protection of life and property of Nigerians

@OfficialPDPNig demands a public inquest into this reckless attack @GovSamuelOrtom as our party also calls on @PoliceNG to commence immediate investigation and arrest of the assailants.

Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP National Publicity Secretary


Reno Omokri reacts;

It is sad, but not surprising, that Governor Ortom, who has been most vocal against killer herdsmen and their bandit cousins, was attacked by gunmen today in Benue. This is @MBuhari’s Nigeria. Arrest Wakili and be arrested. Criticise gunmen and be gunned down!

Just because he has refused to give his land for Buhari's RUGA, Buhari gave his Fulani terrorist the permission to attack him.


Miyetti Allah is a terrorist group and their leaders are terrorists who are enjoying Presidential backing, yet you as a Southerner think Igboho and Kanu are your problems.


When Buhari leaves power 2023e go red for Fulani (If Nigeria no break up before then)

A friend of mine was kidnapped yesterday at karji in kaduna, they have reached out to the family members demanding for 100M before it's reduced to 20M.

Last month a senior colleague was killed in kachia, kaduna state while returning from a trip.. Our dear country has really gone! If an governor with all his convoys could be attacked who are the the poor masses.... God pls use covid19 to kill this callous man, who's failed in his primary responsibility but if you can't Pls help us in achieving the YORUBA Nation

But for these guys to have the audacity of attacking a governor convoy shows they obviously have the backing of some people in the federal government. It is time to start killing these guys like their cows there is nothing like a peaceful fulani herdsman.
