Benue State Gov. reacts to comment by Bauchi State Gov. on herdsmen carrying arms

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has described as disappointing, the comments made by his Bauchi State counterpart, Bala Mohammed who blamed him for what he termed ‘negative perception of herders’ when he spoke on the current security situation in the country.

Governor Ortom in a statement said while he will not want to join issues with his Bauchi State counterpart, he finds it shocking that a colleague who took the oath of office as he also did, to protect and preserve the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, now takes the lead in violating provisions of the same constitution by calling for lawlessness.

Governor Ortom pointed out that the most shocking part of Governor Bala Mohammed’s statement was where he defended herdsmen to carry arms.
