Defend Yourselves Against Armed Invaders, Ortom To Benue People




Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has urged residents of the state to defend themselves against armed invaders in their domain.

Ortom made the remark on Monday, May 17, while reacting to questions from journalists on his arrival to Makurdi from Oyo State where he attended the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum meeting.

Speaking he said that people need to rise up against the unnecessary invasion of their homes.

Ortom was reportedly quoted saying: “I have told my people to defend themselves. You can’t sit down in your house for people to come from somewhere and kill you.

“If you don’t have weapons required by the law, go to your neighbour and get one. Everybody in Benue both men and women should defend themselves.”

Commenting on the PDP governors’ meeting, he disclosed that the forum has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to give attention to security.

His words: “We have affirmed our position on the southern governors’ decision banning open grazing of animals. We hope that we shall join hands together with the president to address the matter.

“There is no way we can do it without the president because more power is at the centre. We have work to do with the president.”
