Fulani herdsman calls my wife to threaten me – Ortom

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Wednesday said a Fulani herdsman called his wife, Eunice Ortom, to threaten him over the anti- open grazing law recently enacted by his administration.

Ortom disclosed this when he addressed members of National Council of Tiv Youths who were in his office.

Members of the group were in the Government House to protest against the outburst of leaders of Fulani cattle rearers to the anti-open grazing law.

Speaking at the occasion, Ortom said the law has come to stay, adding that since its enactment he has come under constant threat.

He said, “Just this morning one Fulani herdsman called my wife and asked her to warn me that I am joking with them. But my response when my wife told me is that I am not joking. This law has come to stay.

“I challenge anyone who has superior solution to the senseless killings of our people other than anti-open grazing law to bring it forward before the passage of the bill by the House of Assembly. Due process was followed, every nationality living in the state, the Igbos, Yorubas, Hausas/Fulanis and others were invited to the public hearing.”

Gov. Ortom said the full implementation of the law would commence in November.
