Land Grabbing: I Have Document, Fulani Want To Takeover Nigeria – Gov Ortom Insists


Report By: Ochogwu Sunday |

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has insisted that the agenda of Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria is to conquer the entire nation. The Governor, while speaking with BBC pidgin at the weekend, said he has documents to back up his claims. According to him, the Fulani Nationality Movement who claimed responsibility for his recent attack, said that Nigeria is their only country.

He said, “Fulani Nationality Movement, FUNAM were the people who attempted to kill me recently. They said Nigeria is the only country that belongs to them. It is written and I have the document. “I have sent copy of the document to the president, police, DSS. The FUNAM said they wanted this revolution in 1800 but could not achieve it through Usman Danfodio.

“They claimed that they have the power, money and all it takes to achieve it”.

Ortom, who has been in a face-off with the presidency over his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari’s inability to tackle the security challenges facing the nation, lamented that terrorism is beginning to takeover the country like Afghanistan and other waring countries in the world.

“The terrorism that we used to hear in far away countries like Afghanistan, Iraq and other warring countries has surfaced in Nigeria. “And as it is, it seems the presidency is in support of what is happening because it is not saying anything. “Like I always say, if the Federal Government has the power to stop secessionists like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho then the should have the power to stop banditry in the country too.

“They call the attackers unknown gunmen but for me, I know that they are Fulani people coming to kill us. And the presidency is involved in this agenda. “The Fulani people have claimed that they want to capture the entire country”, he added. In a related development, the unabated insecurity in the country has drawn wide reactions accross nigeria on the Fulani Herdsmen attacks: Buhari part of Fulani agenda to conquer Nigeria – Tiv youths allege

In a publication report by:  Ochogwu Sunday Published on May 1, 2021 The Tiv Youth Organisation, TYO, an umbrella body of all Tiv youths worldwide, has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari was part of the Fulani’s agenda to take over Nigeria. The group made the allegation following the recent statement by the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu describing the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom as someone who only sees the problems of others, not his own.

DAILY POST recalls that Governor Ortom had on Tuesday, called on President Buhari to immediately convene a National Security Summit to discuss and address the worsening security situation in the country. The governor had made the call while addressing protesting youths at Abagena village where Fulani militiamen killed over seven residents and injured many others during a midnight attack on Monday.

But Mr Garba, in a statement on Thursday, faulted Governor Ortom’s call for the president to be proactive in curbing the deteriorating security situation in the state and other parts of the country stating that Buhari was saddened by the governor’s comments. Reacting, in a statement issued on Saturday by its President General, Timothy Hembaor, the TYO alleged that Buhari’s silence over killings in Benue and other parts of the country by suspected Fulani herdsmen indicated his support for the attacks.

According to TYO, despite public threats by some Fulani groups to continue unleashing mayhem on innocent Nigerians, the president has kept mum. The statement reads in part, “The President is first a Fulani man and Fulani leaders have announced publicly that their agenda is to conquer and occupy Nigeria and they are carrying it out. “So far, President Buhari has not shown in any way that he is not part of that agenda.

“Even in Mallam Garba Shehu’s statement, he did not deny that President Buhari is part of the agenda. “Mallam Shehu should come out publicly and tell Nigerians the President is part of the Fulani agenda, boldly declared by Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore and the Fulani Nationality Movement, FUNAM, or not. “Let him refute Governor Ortom’s accusation if it is baseless.
