The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to the attack on Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State’s convoy by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
News had reported that Ortom confirmed that he almost lost his life during an attack on Saturday by some gunmen he described as herdsmen.
The Governor who spoke with newsmen after the incident, narrated that the gunmen, numbering about 15, trailed him and his team to a riverbank when he was on foot before launching the attack.
Ortom’s convoy was attacked along Makurdi/Gboko road in Makurdi Local Government Area of Benue but his security team repelled the attack and whisked the Governor to safety.
Reacting in a post on Twitter, Nnamdi Kanu slammed the United States for refusing to call the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to order and condemn the attack on Ortom.
He wrote: “Every day same #Fulani terrorists and their Fulani sponsors in Aso Rock terrorising the whole of #Nigeria.
“Instead of @USinNigeria to condemn such brazen act of criminality, they are busy configuring an elusive fake unity with the same #Fulani murderers. Failure of honest diplomacy.”
