Senator Abba Moro, representing Benue South Senatorial District, has condemned the attack on the state Governor, Samuel Ortom by suspected herdsmen.
Moro described the attack on Ortom as mindless, provoking and highly unacceptable.
Ortom was attacked on his farm by suspected militia herdsmen at Tyo-mu village, along Makurdi – Gboko road
Reacting, the lawmaker wonders what becomes of people of the state.
In a statement signed by his Special Assistant, Emmanuel Eche-Ofun John, Moro said: “If the Governor, the Chief Security Officer of the State, is not safe and can be attacked by criminals in broad daylight, what then becomes the fate of the defenceless and unarmed citizens in their villages and on their farms.”
Moro also appealed to security agents to ensure the protection of lives and properties of Benue people.
He urged security agents to tackle insecurity in the state headlong and “quickly nip the disturbing trend in the bud.”
