Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom has reacted to the worsening insecurity ravaging the country.
Reacting to a viral video of bandits flogging Kaduna-bound train attack victims and their threat to kidnap the president and the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, Ortom said there’s no government in the country and that Nigerians are now exposed to the Afghanistan treatment.
Addressing journalists at the new banquet hall of the government house, Makurdi on Monday July 25, the Governor said;
“Things are getting worse in Nigeria. You know I said this before I travelled out that, very soon, with the manner bandits are operating without proactive steps from the federal government, they will soon enter the 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 long time ago.
“Those people in Afghanistan, who are bandits and Fulanis, are the ones (wreaking havoc). They are being sponsored. I feel pains that this is happening in my generation. There is no government in Nigeria today. Those who are surrounding the president are criminals.
