Ortom to herdsmen: Respect Benue laws or go and carry AK-47 in Bauchi


 

Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom,  has warned herdsmen against disobeying laws guiding the use of arms in the state.


Ortom, who said this on Monday, asked the herdsmen to either respect Benue laws or go and carry AK-47 in Bauchi State.


Governor of Bauchi, Bala Mohammed,  had justified the carriage of AK-47 by herdsmen, saying that was the only option herdsmen have for self-defence.


While clarifying the statement which generated criticism, the Bauchi governor said AK-47 was used as a 'figure of speech'.


But Ortom berated Bala, saying that he was beginning to think that the Bauchi governor is a "part of the terrorist Fulani organisation terrorising the country".


The Benue governor told the herdsmen that they can live anywhere in Nigeria provided that they would be law-abiding.
