The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of supporting Fulanis to take over the country.

Ortom disclosed this during an interview with Arise TV on Wednesday morning, while speaking on insecurity in Benue state.

He described as barbaric, the gruesome killing of farmers in Edumoga, Okpokwu Local Government Area of the state by gunmen believed to be herdsmen.

Recall that more than 24 persons were recently killed in their sleep in Benue communities by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

The suspected Fulani herdsmen had invaded and killed 8 persons in Mbadwem, Guma Local Government and 16 in Tiortyu, a sprawling settlement in Tarka Local Government, along Makurdi-Gboko road.

But Ortom believes the recent attacks in his state by militia Fulani herdsmen have to do with their agenda to take over the entire country.

Ortom said, “It is not just about a certain local government area, It is about the entire state, it is about the entire country, Nigeria.

“Tell me where else, is it in Zamfara, where the Hausa people live and the Fulanis have decided to take over the land.

“Is it in Kaduna, where the indigenous people were either traditionalist or Christians now they have been taken over.

“Is it in the South East or in the Middle BeIt where the Fulanis have decided that they are going to take over this country and actively they have been supported by the present government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Like I said, I know they are not happy, we know they are angry. But that is the truth. Even if I am dead, let it be on record just like Martin Luther King of America who stood for the grass and said the truth. I am ready to do it.

“This is the truth the Fulanis have made up their mind to take Nigeria as their own country and using Islam as a tool to ensure that they are in control.

”The governor also revealed that suspected armed herdsmen who plotted to assassinate him in his farm at Tyo-Mu community, near Makurdi, the state capital on 21st March, 2021 have been set free by security agents who arrested them.

“The federal government is complicit in insecurity going on in my state. The day that the federal government wants the insecurity to stop, they will call security summit where I will present facts about what is going on”,Ortom said.

“Even as I speak to you, the people that attacked me after a year ago, who are Fulani militia have been freed. No culprit has been brought to book.”
