Gov Nyesom Wike
Following the attack on Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom by suspected herdsmen, Gov Nyesom Wike has warned the Federal government, stating that Nigeria would cease to exist if anything happens to Gov Ortom.
Gov Wike said this in reaction to the attacks unleashed on the Benue governor along Makurdi-Gboko Road in the Makurdi Local Government Area on Saturday, March 20.
“If you kill Ortom, then be prepared to bury Nigeria. If anything happens to Governor Ortom, the Federal Government will be held responsible and they should be prepared that there will be no more Nigeria,” Wike said.
Mr Wike also through the statement recalled alleged plans to assassinate him during the 2019 elections by Jamil Sarham, then general officer commanding of the Nigerian Army 6 Division in Port-Harcourt.
