Dr. Samuel Ortom, was in Oyo State to flag off the construction of the Senator Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja Government Reserved Area (GRA) and the 32 kilometres Phase I of the Ibadan Circular Road.

Ortom who disclosed this while addressing a world press conference at Government House in Makurdi, said the plot to eliminate him is allegedly being masterminded by former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Alhaji Lamido Sanusi.

Ortom said the group which refused to name itself, accused him of being responsible for the recent killing of some pastoralists at Akwanaja in Doma Local Government Area of Nasarawa State via a bomb attack.

“My attention was drawn to a write-up signed by 52 personalities of Fulani extraction led by the deposed Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi in form of a letter to Mr President in which the group leveled all manner of accusations against me in a desperate attempt to set me up for hatred, vilification, and attacks,” he said.

Ortom said his detractors also “tried to link the Benue State Livestock Guards with the killings, claiming that the pastoralists were bombed on their way from Benue to Nasarawa states after they had retrieved their cattle”.

“The group maliciously accused me of carrying out genocide against pastoralists. The dethroned Emir Sanusi did not stop at that”, Ortom said.
