The verbal fisticuffs between Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom and his Bauchi counterpart, Bala Mohammed took a new dimension as the Benue Governor described the Bauchi State Executive as a Fulani terrorist, Njenje Media News reports.
Visibly pissed Ortom, while addressing journalists at Government House Makurdi on Monday, was reacting to an earlier attack on him by Mohammed, also alleged the Bauchi Governor may be among the armed Fulani who want to kill him .
“Some herdsmen wrote me a letter that they will kill me from the way and manner my brother and Governor of Bauchi spoke in support of herdsmen carrying arms, I suspect that he is one among the Fulani who wants to kill me and should anything happen to me they should not look far,” Ortom stated.

He added with a remark that herdsmen who carry arms should go to Bauchi and not stay in Benue, a cheeky reference to the Bauchi Governor’s earlier assertion that Herdsmen should be allowed to carry arms .
