The Northern States Governors Forum has condemned the attack on the convoy of Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, describing it as a disturbing development which must be investigated thoroughly.
Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State Simon Lalong in a statement said the attack on Governor Ortom was yet another daring attempt by criminals to cause mayhem, not only in Benue State but in the nation.
While praising the security details of the Governor for repelling the attack, Lalong said relevant security agencies must carry out detailed investigation to fish out those behind the attack and their sponsors.
According to him, all hands must be on deck to tame this degeneration of security in the country that threatens the corporate existence of the nation.
Lalong said the Northern Governors stood in solidarity with their colleague and the entire people of Benue State, assuring that they would continue to engage and support security agencies in their duty of securing the region and the nation.
