The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has said the Keana Local Government Area Chairman, Adamu Adii, was trying to sabotage his efforts and that of his Nasarawa counterpart, Abdullahi Sule, at bringing peace to border communities.
Adii had accused the governor of harbouring a group of person that always attack and kill Fulani herdsmen in Benue State.
Ortom in a statement by Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, however, demanded an apology, saying he and his counterpart in Nasarawa State had met many times and held peace meetings.
The statement read, “The Keana chairman was at one of the meetings; so, we found what he said to be either a mischief or a deliberate attempt to sabotage the peace efforts been made by his own governor and our governor.”
While stating that the governor never for once harbour any group that attacked and killed Fulani herdsmen, Akase said the council boss must apologise for the uncomplimentary remarks against Ortom.
