PDP Reacts To Attack On Ortom’s Convoy


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the police to investigate the attack on the convoy of Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state.

Naija News had reported how gunmen attacked the governor’s convoy while on a visit to a farm on Saturday at Tyo Mu along Makurdi-Gboko road.

Narrating the incident to journalists, Ortom condemned the attack by Fulani herdsmen, noting that it took the intervention of his security aides to wade them off.

But in a statement on Saturday by the party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it is worrisome that the attack came after Ortom had called on the federal government to protect the life and property of Nigerians.

Ologbondiyan called on the police to commence an immediate investigation and ultimately arrest the assailants.

He said: “PDP expresses shock at the attack on Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state, by alleged herdsmen.

“It is worrisome that this attack is coming on the heels of passionate demands by Dr. Ortom that FG live up to its responsibility on the protection of life and property of Nigerians.”
