Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom on Monday accused his Bauchi State counterpart, Bala Mohammed of being a terrorist based on his utterances supporting herdsmen in carrying AK-47 to defend themselves.
Governor Ortom who made this accusation while addressing journalists in Makurdi, said Governor Bala Mohammed must be a terrorist for supporting illegal arms wielding by foreign herdsmen.
“I wouldn’t want to be joining issues with my brother, friend, and colleague Bauchi Governor. But since he has continued to vilify, intimidate and blackmail me. It is said that silence is consent. I am compelled to respond to him.
“I am beginning to think that my brother, the governor of Bauchi State is part of the terrorist Fulani organisation that is terrorising this country.
“Why do I say this? This is the same governor who took the oath of office to protect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This constitution does not leave room for allowing foreign herdsmen to come in without valid papers,” he said.
