Governor Ortom Reveals Those Who Attacked His Convoy

Governor Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom on Saturday has disclosed that he was attacked by some herdsmen on his farm near Tyo-mu, along Makurdi-Gboko Highway.

Ortom, while speaking in Makurdi shortly after the attack, said that he was inspecting the farm when herders ambushed him and his security personnel, opening heavy fire.

The governor however was said to have quickly linked the attack to the anti-open grazing policy of the state, saying a law that was adopted in 2018 against nomadic grazing will not be repealed because it has been popular amongst residents.
