Ortom ran for one kilometre to escape attack

Ortom ran for one kilometre to escape attack

Benue State  Governor  Samuel Ortom has said he will cooperate with special investigators sent to probe weekend’s attempt on his life.

The state government claimed that the governor did not make up any story on the attack for political gain.

THEWATCH  NEWS gathered that the Governor ran for over one kilometre to escape the attack.

The government said the security team did a good job of repelling the attacks to protect him from danger.

The clarifications on Ortom's attack were made by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, following a dispute over the governor’s allegation of an assassination attempt.

Some critics alleged that it was impossible for Ortom to be attacked because of the security wall around him.


Many Nigerians have alleged that Ortom was seeking attention for political gains. 

Akase said it was true that there was an assassination attempt on Ortom.

Kaase said: “The governor is yet to meet with the investigators. We are expecting them. The governor has expressed willingness to meet with them.

He gave assurance that the Benue State Government will fully support the investigation.

Asked to respond to allegations that Ortom was only playing to the gallery, he said the governor was never seeking attention with the incident.
