Fulani crises: Governor Samuel Ortom calls for the arrest of Garus Gololo


Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has called for the arrest and questioning of a self-acclaimed spokesman of Fulani groups and All Progressive Congress, APC, chieftain, Garus Gololo over alleged comments on Benue killings.

Gololo had recently alleged that Governor Ortom was sponsoring attacks on Fulanis residing in Benue state.

Piqued by the allegation, the Governor demanded an apology and retraction.

A statement from the Governor on Sunday in Makurdi by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, alleged that Gololo had not been new to such false and malicious statements after his request to be appointed a Special Adviser in Benue state was turned down.
