There are people trying to kidnap and kill me – Ortom



Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has stated that he once heard that some people are planning to kill his aides, kidnap him and dismember his body until he dies.

Ortom made this known at Grace Chapel in the Government House in Makurdi where a Special Thanksgiving Service held in his honour and organized by the Independent Print-Media Publishers Association of Nigeria (IPPAN).

He said “Since my arrival, I have dedicated a special time on daily basis to be with God because He works in miraculous ways; those working against me are wasting their time and will never succeed.

“I have dismantled the devils in Benue Government House; they cannot come near us again. The devil does not have a place in our government house again.

“I am not afraid of any human being. I once heard that some people are planning to kill my security aides, kidnap me and dismember me parts by parts until I die, but I have told them that God will not allow that to happen.

“I have brought myself close to God; there is no turning back. When people plan against me, l will always floor them because God is with me,” he said.

Ortom urged the people of Benue to be patient with him because he has already approved some projects which they can judge by the end of his second tenure.

“We are laying foundations that generations yet unborn will benefit. We appreciate what we have done so far; we are not rushing into making policies, we are taking our time.

“Even now, we have done series of projects, carried out an amnesty programme and implemented the anti-open grazing law. In Benue, herdsmen must obey the law and nobody is above the law,” he said.
