The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has asked Nigerians to hold Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State responsible if anything happens to him.
Governor Ortom said this while addressing journalists in Makurdi, Benue State capital, on Monday, February 22. According to him, Governor Mohammed’s defence of Fulani herdsmen carrying AK-47 indicated that he was part of an attempt to assassinate him.
Governor Ortom said, “I want to think that, with what he said and what those herdsmen wrote to me and said that they were going to assassinate me, Bala Mohammed is also part of it, with what he has said. And if anything happens to me, I don’t want anybody to be in doubt, Bala Mohammed should be held responsible. Especially his last week outing after the condemnable remarks he made about Fulani carrying AK-47 and living anywhere in Nigeria.”
