Ortom in Aso Rock, meets Buhari over attempt on his life

Benue State governor, Mr Samuel Ortom, has met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential villa, Abuja, following the recent attack on him by suspected herdsmen.

After the meeting on Tuesday, he told correspondents that he was with the president to commend him for the statement made condemning the attack in his farm along Gkoko road in the state.

He said he had made suggestions to the president on the security situation in the state, saying that President Buhari had accepted them.

The governor stressed the need to deemphasize politics on the issue of security, saying that all hands must be on deck to tackle the menace.

He commended his colleague governors for standing by him over the attack.

Ortom regretted that there are some doubters over the attack, wondering what benefits would accrue to him from claiming what did not happen.

While asserting that he has not done anything wrong in enacting a law beneficial to the state, he prayed that his enemies should not experience what he went though.
