If anything happens to me, Bala Mohammed should be held responsible - Governor Ortom

The governor of Benue state, Governor Samuel Ortom while briefing journalists in Makurdi on Monday, February 22 stated that if anything should happen to him, Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state should be held responsible.
 Governor Ortom made this accusation after  Governor bala Mohammed accused him of being responsible for the hatred against thr Fulanis in Nigeria.

Speaking at the press conference on Monday afternoon, Governor Ortom accused Governor Mohammed of supporting illegal arms wielding foreign herdsmen.

“I want to think that, with what he said and what those herdsmen wrote to me and said that they were going to assassinate me, Bala Mohammed is also part of it, with what he has said.

And if anything happens to me, I don’t want anybody to be in doubt, Bala Mohammed should be held responsible. Especially his last week outing after the condemnable remarks he made about Fulani carrying AK-47 and living anywhere in Nigeria.

He came back to say Ortom is responsible for the hatred against Fulani men and I regard this as a way of vilifying me and profiling me towards assassination. He wants to instigate the Fulani people against me. I am not against Fulani people, they are in Benue State and they remain here,” 
Ortom said.

He called on Governor Bala Mohammed to render an apology to Nigerians for comment which has been condemned by many Nigerians

 “I think the governor of Bauchi State, my brother, Governor Bala Mohammed should just come out and apologise to Nigerians,” Governor Ortom said.
