Following the dispute between Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed and Governor Ortom of Benue over Herdsmen going around with AK-47, the Arewa Youths for Peace and Development has attacked Governor Samuel Ortom for calling his Bauchi State counterpart Senator Bala Mohammed a “terrorist”.

Chairman of the group Alhaji Salihu Magaji Mohammed at a press conference, said every one in Nigeria knows Governor Bala as a nationalist and known for his defence of the masses and the oppressed.
“No matter what, to call him a terrorist is unacceptable, erroneous, unfair and we demand an unreserved apology from Ortom to all Nigerians for fanning the embers of disunity in the country over his utterances and reckless statements and actions.

“Governor Ortom in his own selfish interest, is moving in a wrong direction that he may not finish well, when he called a respected serving governor a terrorist, he has simply displayed criminality in governance, thuggery in governance.

“He is creating unnecessary tension when there is no need for it. Today, Benue is insecure. Everyday, people are being killed, maimed and chased out of the state, people are being intimidated by the governor and his thugs. that violates the fundamental human rights of Nigerian citizens in the name of anti-grazing laws.”

Magaji called on the Benue State House of Assembly to commence impeachment process against Governor Ortom for violating the oath of office he swore to defend. Also, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, (MACBAN) in Bauchi State, Sadiq Ibrahim Ahmad said that the Benue Governor is planning to cause trouble in the Country with his utterances.

Ibrahim called on the President, Muhammadu Buhari to call the two leaders to order to avert putting the country in danger. “The President should address the leaders who are violating the constitution, denying people’s rights.”
