We have lost properties worth more than #400billion to fulani heardsmen – Ortom

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, said on Saturday the state
lost property worth over N400billion to renewed herdsmen’s attacks
on communities.
The governor stated this while featuring on Radio Link, a Radio
Nigeria audience participatory programme in Makurdi, the state
capital.
He spoke on the achievements and challenges of his
administration in the past three years.
Ortom said the figure was quoted in a preliminary report on
damages caused by the crisis, adding that the loss was huge and
difficult to recover from.
He said the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment
Law put in place by the state government was the people’s
legislation, stressing that no amount of intimidation or blackmail
would make the government to repeal it.
The governor said: “I have no regret. Why should I have any regret
doing the will of my people? They trusted me and gave me their
votes and I will not betray what they want. I am doing what they
want and I have no regret.”
He commended his colleagues from Taraba and Abia States for
keying into the ranching law, saying it was the right way to go.
