Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom, has insisted that the Fulani are determined to takeover Nigeria, stressing that it is an issue of great concern.
The Governor, who stated this in an interview with BBC pidgin, said he has documents to back up his claims.
Ortom explained that the Fulani Nationality Movement who claimed responsibility for his recent attack, said Nigeria is their only country.
“Fulani Nationality Movement, FUNAM were the people who attempted to kill me recently. They said Nigeria is the only country that belongs to them. It is written and I have the document.
“I have sent copy of the document to the president, police, DSS. The FUNAM said they wanted this revolution in 1800 but could not achieve it through Usman Danfodio.
“They claimed that they have the power, money and all it takes to achieve it”, the governor said.
Ortom who has been engaging the presidency in accusations and counteraccusations, also lamented that terrorism is beginning to takeover the country like Afghanistan and other waring nations.
“The terrorism that we used to hear in far away countries like Afghanistan, Iraq and other warring countries has surfaced in Nigeria.

“And as it is, it seems the presidency is in support of what is happening because it is not saying anything.
“Like I always say, if the Federal Government has the power to stop secessionists like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho then they should have the power to stop banditry in the country too.
“They call the attackers unknown gunmen but for me, I know that they are Fulani people coming to kill us. And the presidency is involved in this agenda.
“The Fulani people have claimed that they want to capture the entire country”, he added.
