There may be no food next year – Gov. Ortom

There may be no food next year – Gov. Ortom

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, yesterday sounded the alarm over the insecurity pervading the state, which prides itself as the “food basket of the nation”, adding that it may cause food shortage.

Gov. Ortom raised the alarm during the visit of the wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, to the Internally Displaced People’s (IDP) camp in Makurdi.
He said, “The various IDP camps indicate that we are under siege in Benue. The destruction in the state is more than the insurgency in the North-east and if the federal government does not rise to stop this insurgency, there will be no food in Nigeria next year.”

It would be recalled that about two years ago a feud over farm and pasture lands and fish ponds between the Fulani-dominated Ologba and Agatu-dominated Egba communities in Agatu local government area of the state has snowballed into a full-scale war.
