The Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, George Akume has begged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission to go after Benue Governor, Samuel Ortom.
Recall that Ortom has been at loggerheads with the Presidency, accusing Fulanis of having a plan to takeover the country. He has also made it clear that he doesn’t want open grazing in his state.
The former governor of Benue State made this call during a press conference in Abuja on Monday.
The briefing was attended by the elders/stakeholders of the All progressives congress in Benue.
The minister also charged Ortom to stop attacking President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said, “We call on Governor Samuel Ortom to tender an unreserved apology to President Muhammadu Buhari, for using foul language and for operating outside the set rules of engagement between the state and the Federal Government.”
“We call on the EFCC and ICPC to thoroughly investigate the application of the total federal allocations to Benue State from May 29, 2015 to date.”
“The Federal Government should as a matter of urgency direct the disbandment of the Livestock Guards in Benue State for their involvements in nefarious and criminal activities leading to the breach of peace and massacre of innocent citizens of Benue State.”
Meanwhile, Ortom has maintained that he has a document to prove his claims that Fulani people are planning to take over Nigeria in a similar way the Taliban took over Afghanistan recently.
