Bala should be held responsible if anything happens to me – Ortom


The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has called on Nigerians to hold the Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed responsible if anything should happen to him.

Ortom accused Mohammed of being a part of those threatening his life, while briefing journalists in Makurdi, Benue State on Monday.

He also accused Governor Mohammed of being a terrorist by supporting illegal arms wielding foreign herdsmen.

“I want to think that, with what he said and what those herdsmen wrote to me and said that they were going to assassinate me, Bala Mohammed is also part of it, with what he has said.

“And if anything happens to me, I don’t want anybody to be in doubt, Bala Mohammed should be held responsible. Especially his last week outing after the condemnable remarks he made about Fulani carrying AK-47 and living anywhere in Nigeria.

“He came back to say Ortom is responsible for the hatred against Fulani men and I regard this as a way of vilifying me and profiling me towards assassination. He wants to instigate the Fulani people against me. I am not against Fulani people, they are in Benue State and they remain here,” Ortom said.

“I think the governor of Bauchi State, my brother, Governor Bala Mohammed should just come out and apologise to Nigerians,” Governor Ortom said.
