The governor made this known when he hosted governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who paid him a condolence visit on the Fulani herdsmen invasion in his state.

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has said the invasion of his state by Fulani herdsmen was beyond just an agitation for a grazing space.

Ortom said that not less than 12 local government areas have been attacked and many communities reduced to rubbles.
He listed the local government areas so far invaded by the Fulani herdsmen to include; Agatu, Guma, Makurdi, Logo, Katisna-Ala, Kwande, Gwer West, Gwer East, Buruku, Tarka, Obi and Oju local government.

Ortom noted that as an agrarian state whose only business is farming, activities of the Fulani invaders was capable of disrupting the agricultural stance of Benue state especially during this cropping season.

The governor categorically stated that Benue does not have any land to give as grazing reserve, but commended President Muhammadu Buhari for immediately approving the deployment of military troop and the police to Agatu.

He also thanked his colleagues “for taking time to come and see things for themselves.”
Speaking after, Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha of Imo state said the Fulani invasion of Benue state is enough to distort the unity of this country.

Okorocha, who is chairman of the 22 APC governors, condemned the invasion and those behind it.
He said: “This provocation is enough to distort the unity of this country. We can manage crisis in other parts of this country but, crisis in Benue is capable of distorting the political equation of this country.”

Meanwhile, Chief of Army staff, Lt. General Buratai has warned Nigerians to be extra vigilant due to the possibility of fleeing Boko Haram insurgents spreading to other parts of the country are disguising as Fulani herdsmen.
