Ortom had traveled out of the country for a 12-day vacation for which he had to cut off in order to address the recent killing that led to the death of two priests and about 17 other worshippers in the state.
Speaking upon his return, the governor vowed that Benue people would never allow intruders take over their land.
He said, “The fact that we in Benue have chosen to be law-abiding does not mean that we are weak. I call on every Benue man and woman to remain resolute. The enemies cannot take our land away from us.”
