President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to a statement credited to the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom calling him a cattle rearer.
The president said the governor accused him of not taking action about the herdsmen killings in the country because he is also a cattle rearer.
"The governor of Benue State said I am not taking action on herdsmen killings because I am also a cattle rearer. While I cannot deny that I am one of them, however what is clear in that the cattle rearers do not carry anything apart from their sticks and cattles. But the people killing and wreaking havoc across the country carry arms and majority of them are foreigners;".
