Recall that suspected militia herdsmen attacked Ortom in his farm at Tyo-mu, along Makurdi -Gboko road earlier on Saturday
Addressing journalists after the incident, Ortom had said the militia ambushed and opened fire on himand his security personnel on his farm.
He decried that the attempt on his life happened a few days after the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore held a meeting in Yola and singled him out as a thorn in their flesh who must be eliminated.
The governor had pointed out that he received intelligence to that effect.
Reacting to the incident, Kanu in a tweet wrote: “Every day same #Fulani terrorists and their Fulani sponsors in Aso Rock terrorising the whole of #Nigeria.
“Instead of @USinNigeria to condemn such brazen act of criminality, they are busy configuring an elusive fake unity with the same #Fulani murderers. Failure of honest diplomacy.”
