Buhari condemns attack on Governor Samuel Ortom, orders thorough, transparent investigation


President Muhammadu Buhari has strongly condemns the attack on Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, saying the string of brutal attacks on individuals and communities in the state, with the latest one targeting the governor, was unacceptable.

The President welcomed the dispatch of a high level team of crack investigators to the state from the Police Headquarters in Abuja, urging the officers to uncover who or whatsoever was behind the attacks and bring them to justice.

In expressing his sympathies and that of the government of the federation to Governor Ortom and all Benue State indigenes, President Buhari said the unfortunate incident must not be politicized, reiterating that an attack on one Nigerian is an attack on all Nigerians.

The President directed the Police to undertake a thorough investigation into the incident involving the governor and into all such incidents affecting individuals and communities in the state.

“Let there be open and transparent investigation and whoever is linked to it should be caught and be made to face the law,” the President directed.
