President Muhammadu Buhari (right) and Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue State has never been shy to accuse Buhari of his ‘Fulanisation’ agenda
The Governor of Benue State (Middlebelt Nigeria) Samuel Ortom has stated that the agenda of Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria is to conquer Nigeria. The Governor disclosed this while speaking with BBC pidgin at the weekend, saying that he has documents to prove his claims.
He stated that the Fulani Nationality Movement who claimed responsibility for his recent attack, stated that Nigeria is their only country. He said, “Fulani Nationality Movement, FUNAM were the people who attempted to kill me recently. They said Nigeria is the only country that belongs to them. It is written and I have the document.
“I have sent copy of the document to the president, police, DSS. The FUNAM said they wanted this revolution in 1800 but could not achieve it through Usman Danfodio. “They claimed that they have the power, money and all it takes to achieve it.”
He also lamented that terrorism is fast taking over the country like Afghanistan. “The terrorism that we used to hear in faraway countries like Afghanistan Iraq and other warring countries has surfaced in Nigeria. And as it is, it seems the presidency is in support of what is happening because it is not saying anything.
“Like I always say, if the Federal Government has the power to stop secessionists like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho then they should have the power to stop banditry in the country too. They call the attackers unknown gunmen but for me, I know that they are Fulani people coming to kill us. And the presidency is involved in this agenda. “The Fulani people have claimed that they want to capture the entire country”, he added.
