Buhari Condemns Attack On Ortom, Says Incident Should Not Be Politicised by fergie001: 10:43pm On Mar 21

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday described the attack on Benue State Governor as unacceptable, warning, however, that the incident should not be politicised.

Buhari who said an attack on any Nigerian is an attack on all Nigerians, welcomed the deployment of a high-level team of crack investigators to the state from the Police headquarters in Abuja, calling on the officers to fish out the perpetrators of the attack and bring them to justice.

“In expressing his sympathies, and that of the government of the federation to Governor Ortom and all Benue indigenes, President Buhari said the unfortunate incident must not be politicized, reiterating that an attack on one Nigerian is an attack on all Nigerians,” a statement from a presidential aide, Garba Shehu, added.

The Nigerian leader, therefore, directed the Police to undertake a thorough investigation into the incident involving the governor and into all such incidents affecting individuals and communities in the state.

“Let there be open and transparent investigation and whoever is linked to it should be caught and be made to face the law,” Buhari added.

Ortom Attacked

Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen had over the weekend attacked Ortom at Tyo Mu along Makurdi/Gboko road in Makurdi Local Government Area of the state.

Briefing journalists, Ortom, who described the gunmen as ‘herdsmen’, said about 15 of the attackers trailed him to the river bank where he was on foot.

The Governor praised his security details that were just about six in number for responding quickly to the attack and repelled them promptly before providing cover for him to return to safety and his vehicle.

“My lawyer is going to make a petition against the leadership of MACBAN because they came out to target me and behind the scene, they are planning to eliminate me on my own land,” he said.

“If I can’t go to the farm as governor with entire security around me then who else can go to the farm? You can imagine the pains that we have here in Benue State.

“I appreciate the security personnel attached to me they were able to repel them and they could not have access to me,” Ortom stated.

I’m shocked by southerners crying foul, shouting fulanisation . Whatever criminal herders are doing to you it’s a negligible percentage of what northerners are enduring.
A prominent emir beards was almost roasted with ak-47 bullets he managed to escape the bullets of these killers because his feet velocity is faster than your internet.
Now imagine It was the Ooni of ife or the Obi of Onitsha that was attacked
My point is these criminals don’t give a hoot whenever you’re Igbo,Yoruba or you’re a descendant of Uthman Dan Fodiyo.
Yes, like the President said let’s stop this monster and stop politicizing insecurities

If a governor with all that heavy security can easily be attacked like this then you can imagine what ordinary unarmed citizens are going through

Agbo can only flourish where there is massive erectile dysfunction. Why do you think many fulani have 2 to 3 wives with plenty children?

Oyinbo need to investigate it
