BENUE, NIGERIA – A terrorist group in Nigeria Fulani National Movement (FUNAM), has warned the Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Saturday of the plan to assassinate him.
Just last few days the governor was attacked on Gboko Road by suspected Fulani militias who were dressed in black, while he was returning from his farm.
“You know today is Saturday and is normal as a farmer, I usually go to my farm, so I went to my farm along Gboko road and on our way back.
He went further to reveal:- “We started hearing some gunshots and we discovered people who were dressed in black and from experience, we now discovered that these are Fulani militias and I do not want to take things for granted because a few days ago the media were awash with a statement from MACBAN who met in Yola, the same place they met in 2016 where they decided that they will take Nigeria and that every other person is a slave that was when they started infiltrating the entire country.”
Reacting to the report of an alleged governor Ortom’s assassination the spokesperson of the group Umar Amir Shehu, said the attack is in line with a plot to kill Ortom who he described as a pagan that used his resources to destruct Fulani tenets.
“Our attention has been drawn to media reports today speculating about who attacked the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom.
“Yes. Yes, we did. The Fulani Nationality Movement (FUNAM) carried out the attack. We have genuine reasons. We acted on behalf of millions of Fulani people in 15 countries.
“It’s a case of vengeance against an infidel who has used his time and money, deployed in destroying the Fulani values and inheritance.
“Our courageous fighters carried out this historic attack to send a great message to Ortom and his collaborators: Wherever you are, once you are against Fulani long-term interest, we shall get you down. This is a clear warning. We hope those who take us for granted will get the indisputable message.”
The militia group also boasted that it would soon accomplish its task of killing Ortom and other governors in the southern part of Nigeria that was against the Fulani settlement also known as rural grazing area (RUGA).
“Our intention is unequivocal: TO KILL HIM. That mission will one day be fulfilled and very soon too.
