Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has accused Emmanuel Yawe, spokesman of the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF of hiding behind the forum to stir crisis and hatred in the state.

Ortom made the remark on Monday in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase.

The ACF spokesman was accused of twisting reports of the numerous attacks in the state by suspected Fulani herdsmen saying the killings in Benue were carried out by people of the state against their kith and kin.

Ortom described the claim as political melodrama of absurdity and sadism meant to disturb the peace of the state.

“He was on a shameful mission; an unsavory role to please enemies of Benue State and save his pay cheque. As a member of All Progressives Congress, APC, Emmanuel Yawe’s desperate mission to change the narrative about the killings in Benue got the better of him.

“He couldn’t hide his motif and aggression. But Yawe surely didn’t speak for ACF. He only used the forum to throw unprovoked punches at Governor Samuel Ortom”.

The governor slammed Yawe over claim that the attacks in the state was due to the ban on open grazing saying his (Yawe) state of Origin, Taraba is also witnessing some levels of attacks by the same herdsmen even thought the government allowed open grazing.

He urged ACF to caution its spokesman against issuing statements that can worsen the current crisis in the country.

“We wish to urge ACF to call Emmanuel Yawe to order. He is one of the crisis merchants who want the disintegration of this country and are doing everything to stir hatred among Nigerians”.
