Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom

Samuel Ortom, the Governor of Benue State has spoken on the attack on his convoy by suspected Fulani herdsmen on Saturday, revealing that the herdsmen had earlier threatened to capture him alive.

Ortom, who revealed that he was returning from his farm situated on Gboko Road when some gun welding men dressed in black stormed out of bushes and started shooting at his convoy, said: “It is normal for me as a farmer to go to my farm on Saturday. On my way back from my farm along Gboko road today, we started hearing gunshots. And we saw people dressed in black, they were Fulani herdsmen.

“They shot at us, but my security men were able to repel them, and we escaped unhurt. Nobody in my convoy was injured. From what I saw, they were more than 15 who came after us. They could be more than that.

I heard I was targeted for elimination. This is not the first time. I heard intelligence report before now that they will kill my security men and capture me alive, then they will be killing me gradually. But, they have failed; they are not God and can’t kill me.
