Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has on Tuesday accused the President Muhammadu Buhari of working for the Fulani ethnic stock to take over Nigeria.

The governor in his reaction to the recent killing of residents allegedly perpetrated by herdsmen in parts of the North-Central state.

Ortom lamented that no fewer than 70 people have been killed in the last two weeks in three local governments in the state.

Amid the rising state of insecurity in the country, Ortom said it “is very clear, Mr President is just working for these Fulanis to take over the whole country.

He added that speaking of the president that “his body language is what is being played out. The body language, the action and inaction of Mr President shows that he is only the President of Fulani people; I have known this.”

Ortom further said “we are becoming a Banana Republic, if we have a President who gave the security agencies order to shoot at sight, whosoever is having AK-47 and the Minister of Defence came out to say that they cannot shoot at sight… so who is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces?”

He reiterated that the activities of herdsmen in the country must be condemned and people should come together to hold the president accountable, adding that “he has taken the oath of office to secure the country and provide security for lives and property; this is unacceptable, this cannot continue.”

On Monday night, seven internally displaced persons in an IDP camp, in the Benue town of Abagena were killed by suspected herdsmen.

Eyewitnesses say the attackers stormed the community and destroyed many houses before moving into the camp.

They say the gunmen overpowered security operatives at the camp and operated from midnight for about two hours.

The IDP camp is located on Makurdi-Lafia road and has more than eighty-six hundred displaced persons.
