Hemba stated the Police team found the fishermen close to the scene of the attack and are being investigated.

Fulani Association of Nigeria has since claimed responsibility for the recent attack on governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state.

Governor Ortom has since called on Nigeria leaders to come together and face the security issues.

“If we secure our country and everything is going fine, then we can talk about 2023. But the way things are going, if we don’t secure the country, there is no way we can be talking about 2023.”
