Armed Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen, today Saturday, March 20, attack the convoy of the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom.

The convoy of Governor Ortom was moving at Tyo Mu along Makurdi/Gboko road in Makurdi Local Government Area of the state when it was ambushed.

Speaking with journalists, the governor who described the gunmen as ‘herdsmen’, said about 15 of them trailed him to the river bank where he was on foot. He said he was saved by his security operatives who worked so hard to protect him and repelled the attack.

“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.

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” he said

He said operatives of Operation Whirl Stroke, the police, and DSS have been mobilized to the forest between Abinse and Tyo-Mu where the armed herdsmen are camped to sweep the area and get them apprehended.
