"Those who organised and those who pulled the
trigger have all been arrested and investigation is
ongoing," he said.

By Nasir Ayitogo

The police have announced the arrest of 10
suspects allegedly involved in the failed attack on
the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom.

The Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP),
Usman Alkali, announced the arrest on Thursday at
a special briefing of State House correspondents at
the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“Those who organised and those who pulled the
trigger have all been arrested and investigation is
ongoing,” he said.

He said investigations so far show that the outcome is contrary to the claims made by the governor.

PREMIUM TIMES reported how Mr Ortom, in March,
stated that gunmen suspected to be herders
attacked him on his farm near Tyo-mu, along
Makurdi-Gboko Highway of Benue State.

The police chief said the suspects are still being
detained by the police without prosecution because
judiciary staff are on strike.

“We have had them for over a month but the courts
have been closed for over three months, where do I
take them to?” he said.

Let's see their faces please..

It may turn out to be that the people arrested are Ortom's people and not herdsmen..

There is a hidden agenda against this country called Nigeria. We have caught many people in the act (of terrorism) we thought were killer herdsmen..but after lifting the veil, we saw that they are actually indigenes...This shows some agents of destruction are behind these killings.

This security problem can only be solved if we give the local governments the power they deserve.

The movie is about to start

Easy to predict.
Christian middlebeltters would be arraigned as the attackers... mostly from APC camp in Benue.

Then conspiracy theory begins

Says his SSA on Salary and pension.
He is still owing some salary arrears and pension. Local govt staff is even worse.

Besides why are you tracking Ortomatic failure with party affiliation as if he has not been crying of Fulani herdsmen even while he's in the APC.

If the narrative is different from what the governor said, then the police is playing pranks, and have most definitely arrested the innocent, who are also themselves victims of the Fulani agenda.

Go and look into a mirror, who you see is the culprit.

Police will definitely arrest Benue people in order to prove the wrong anyway.
