President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday confirmed the attack on the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, and condemned the attack.
The president also called for an “open and transparent investigation” of the attack, saying ‘whoever is linked to it should be caught and be made to face the law.”
The attack occurred when the governor visited his farm in the state.
Although the governor narrated how the attack occurred, many Nigerians questioned his narrative with many also expressing doubts about the attack.
The police have since commenced an investigation into the attack.
President Muhammadu Buhari 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 welcomes 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.
