Report has it that again the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has condemned the Federal Government for its lack of commitment in tackling the security challenges in Nigeria.
Ortom said security forces in the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) have demonstrated capacity with the arrest of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu; and Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
Ortom was speaking to Channels Television’s ‘NewsNight’ programme on Monday, he challenged the Buhari regime to go after bandits and Fulani militiamen killing, r*ping, and kidnapping people all over the country with the same gusto it has used to pursue separatists.
In the last few months, secessionist agitation has been loud in the Southern part of the country, championed mainly by Kanu and Igboho. The agitators cited perceived injustice in the allocation of resources and appointment into critical offices, insecurity, under-development, amongst reasons for wanting to leave the country.
