Gov Ortom: Fulani Want To Take Over Nigeria
The objective of Fulani herders in Nigeria, according to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, is to conquer the entire country.
iexclusive News Nigeria reports that the Governor stated he has evidence to back up his accusations in an interview with BBC pidgin over the weekend.
The Fulani Nationality Movement, which claimed responsibility for his recent attack, said that Nigeria is their sole country, according to him.
“The ones that tried to assassinate me recently were the Fulani Nationality Movement, FUNAM,” he claimed.
They claimed that Nigeria is their sole possession. It’s written, and I’ve got the paper.
“I’ve forwarded a copy of the paper to the president, the police, and the DSS. The FUNAM claimed that they desired this revolution in 1800 but that Usman Danfodio was unable to bring it about.
“They claimed to have all the power, money, and resources necessary to achieve their goals.”
Ortom, who has been at odds with the presidency over his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari’s incapacity to address the country’s security concerns, lamented that, like Afghanistan and other warring places around the world, terrorism is beginning to take over the country.
“We used to hear about terrorism in faraway nations like Afghanistan, Iraq, and other warring countries, but now it’s in Nigeria.
“At the moment, it appears that the White House is in support of what is going on since it isn’t saying anything.
“As I usually say, if the Federal Government can stop secessionists like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho, it should be able to end banditry in the country as well.
“They call the assailants unknown gunmen, but I know they’re Fulani people coming to kill us,” said one of the attackers. And the president is a part of this plan.
