Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom has said that he is in possession of a document proving that the Fulani tribe plans to ‘takeover’ Nigeria.

Speaking with BBC Pidgin English, Ortom in a recent interview, Ortom said: “Fulani Nationality Movement, FUNAM were the people who attempted to kill me recently. They said Nigeria is the only country that belongs to them. It is written and I have the document.

“I have sent copy of the document to the president, police, DSS. The FUNAM said they wanted this revolution in 1800 but could not achieve it through Usman Danfodio. They claimed that they have the power, money and all it takes to achieve it.”

According to the governor, the terrorism that was spoken of in countries like Afghanistan and Iraq has come to Nigeria.

“The terrorism that we used to hear in faraway countries like Afghanistan Iraq and other warring countries has surfaced in Nigeria.

“And as it is, it seems the presidency is in support of what is happening because it is not saying anything.”, he said.

The Presidency, reacting to the comment in a statement signed by its spokesman, Garba Shehu, last week, said Ortom was not fit to be a governor.
