Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom and Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, on Tuesday, settled their rifts over their face-off on the herdsmen crisis rocking the country.
Mohammed had defended Fulani herdsmen wielding AK-47 rifles, saying they carry arms for self-protection.
While reacting, Governor Ortom lambasted the Bauchi governor for allegedly supporting criminality while labeling him a “terrorist governor”.
The Peoples Democratic Party had waded into the altercation between the two governors.
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and his Adamawa State counterpart, Ahmadu Fintiri, met with the two governors on Tuesday in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, and initiated reconciliation efforts.
