Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has warned that terrorists may overrun Nigeria if nothing is done to curb the security situation in the country.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, the Governor lamented that Nigerians are “under siege.”
He said over 1,700 people have been killed in Benue State since Buhari became President.
According to Ortom: “Terrorists would overrun the country in no distant time.
All Progressives Congress (APC)- led government did not only fail Nigerians, but has also appeared helpless in the fight against insecurity and has shown that it has no capacity to fix the economy, agriculture and education”.
The Governor also disclosed that about 1.5 million people have been rendered homeless and currently sheltered in camps for Internally Displaced Person (IDPs) across Benue State.
He decried that most of these IDPs have no hope of returning to their ancestral homes soon.
