Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Tuesday said people attacking him over his position on the activities of criminal herdsmen in his state would soon be visited by the wrath of God.
The governor spoke in an interview with Daily Post, saying he had suffered various attacks for defending his people from the herdsmen.
He said some politicians in the state had been sabotaging the interest of his people for political and personal gain.
He said, “I will say it’s well. God will help us. All these things they are doing; the day of reckoning is coming. I can assure you. All these injustices; all the things that I have suffered on behalf of my people; the day of reckoning will come for all these blackmailers who have come out now to cause confusion in Benue State.
“The same people had benefited immensely from our people who voted them, but they are now turning our state into IDPs camps.
“God will judge us. And because they want to be national chairman, they want to remain as ministers, they do press conferences, they insult the people and walk on their graves and across their dead bodies. The day of reckoning is coming. Watch my words! I serve the living God”.
FirstNews had reported Ortom’s war of words with the presidency, the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume over various attacks Benue people had suffered in the hands of suspected herdsmen.
