I have proof that Fulani want to take over Nigeria – Gov Ortom

NBC queries Channels TV over Ortom interview on buhari

The Governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, has claimed he has documents which prove Fulanis want to take over Nigeria.

Ortom, speaking with BBC Pidgin over the weekend, insisted that the agenda of Fulani herdsmen is to conquer the entire nation.

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”.

Ortom, who has been in a face-off with the presidency over his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari’s inability to tackle the security challenges facing the nation, lamented that terrorism is beginning to takeover the country like Afghanistan and other waring countries in the world.
