Terrorists’ kidnap threat on Buhari shows there’s Govt in Nigeria – Governor laments

Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, has described the recent kidnap threat issued to President Muhammadu Buhari by terrorists as an indication that there is no government in the country.

A video had surfaced online recently in which some armed bandits were seen threatening to kidnap Buhari and the Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai if there demands are not met by the government.

But while reacting to the video in a chat with journalists in Makurdi recently, Ortom noted that “things are getting worse in Nigeria.”

He lamented that bandits and Fulanis in Afghanistan are the ones abducting Nigerians.


He said, “You know I said this before I travelled that very soon, with the manner in which the bandits are operating without proactive steps from the federal government, they will soon enter Aso Rock.

“You have seen happenings in the country, the Kuje prison break and the threat to kidnap the president, God forbid but this is what I saw a long time ago.

“Those people in Afghanistan who are bandits and Fulani are the ones. They are being sponsored. I feel pained that this is happening in my generation. There is no government in Nigeria today. Those who are surrounding the president are criminals.”
