Reacting further, Governor Samuel Ortom said what was happening in his state Benue was a clear act of Jihad being carried out by the Muslim Fulani Herdsmen against the Christian Communities of Benue, Northcentral and Southern Nigeria.
The embattled Governor said there was nothing they could do to defend themselves because they have been disarmed by the Federal Government of Nigeria led by President Mohammed Buhari who coincidentally happens to be a Fulani man.
