“The APC reiterates that we must all collaborate to end criminality in all forms. A crime is a crime and should not be politicised in any way”.

Herdsmen had attacked Ortom in his farm at Tyo-mu village, along Makurdi – Gboko road.

Reacting, the governor had alleged that linked the assassination attempt to Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN..

The governor claimed that MACBAN had concluded plans to assassinate him over his position on open grazing.

Ortom alleged that the Myetti Allah took the decision to eliminate him during a meeting they organised recently in Yola.
