PMB describes attack on Gov Ortom as unacceptable, orders thorough investigation

From Esther Akaa, Lafia

President Muhammadu Buhari has described as unacceptable, the string of brutal attacks on individuals and communities in Benue State, with the latest one targeting the governor, Samuel Ortom.

President Buhari, while condemning the attack on the governor, approved  the dispatch of a high level team of crack investigators from the Police headquarters in Abuja to the state.

In a statement released on Sunday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media & Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, he urged the officers to uncover who, or whatsoever, was behind the attacks and bring them to justice.

The president expressed his sympathy and that of the federal government to Governor Ortom and all Benue indigenes, saying it was an  unfortunate incident that must not be politicised and noted that an attack on one Nigerian is an attack on all Nigerians.

He charged the Police to undertake a thorough investigation into the incident involving the governor and all such incidents affecting individuals and communities in the state.

“Let there be open and transparent investigation and whoever is linked to it should be caught and be made to face the law,” he said.
