Ortom tells IDPs go home and defend yourself with stones

Ortom tells IDPs go home and defend yourself with stones. The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Tuesday, told the Internally Displaced Persons, who were displaced due to Fulani herdsmen attacks,  to go back home and use stones to defend themselves.

This, he said, was because he was tired of keeping IDPs in Camps.

Ortom explained that killings in the state had become one too many to such an extent that people were running from their homes.

The governor said this during his visit to  the displaced persons who were forced to flee their homes after armed herdsmen attacked Naka, Gwer West Local Government Area of Benue State.

Ortom stated that the killings were becoming uncontrollable and charged them to embrace self-defence.

He said, “David in the Bible used ordinary stone to defeat his enemy, it is now time for you to stay at home and use the stone in your homes to defend yourself instead of running away.
