Fulanis Threaten To Murder Benue Governor

The Fulanis have allegedly threatened to murder Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom over the anti-open grazing law recently enacted in the state.

The Governor made this known on Wednesday when addressing members of National Council of Tiv Youths.

The Youth had launched an open protest to the government house over what they described  as the unholy activities of Fulani cattle rearers in the state.

According to him, “just this morning (Wednesday), one Fulani called my wife and asked her to warn me that I (Ortom) am joking with them (Fulani), but my response when my wife told me this is that I am not joking, this law has come to stay.

“I challenge anyone who has superior solution to the senseless killings of our people other than anti-open grazing law to bring it forward. Before the passage of the bill by the House of Assembly, due process was followed, every ethnic group living in the state; the Igbos, Yorubas, Hausas/Fulanis and others were invited to the public hearing.”

“Whoever chooses to live in Benue must obey the law of the land, there is no grazing in Benue, I was elected to protect lives and property of every resident of the state, not to preside over dead people.”
