Following the arrest of IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu by the Federal Government, it has been reported that the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has advised the Federal Government to apply the same zeal that led to the arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, against “armed Fulani herdsmen” terrorising Nigeria.
Ortom reportedly stated that herdsmen who have claimed responsibility for killing many Nigerians deserve to be visited with the same capacity.
According to him, “If the Federal Government has the capacity to arrest Nnamdi Kanu in a foreign land, they should exhibit the same zeal to arrest armed Fulani herdsmen who are terrorising our country. The herdsmen have claimed responsibility for the killing of many Nigerians.”
Ortom made this statement due to series of attacks by herdsmen and bandits in Benue State.
This is coming after the Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu was reportedly arrested in Kenya by Interpol.
