Benue State Governor

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has been served impeachment notice by eight lawmakers of the state House of Assembly under the APC.

According to Vanguard reports, the lawmakers who sat in the state’s Assembly complex on Monday, 30th July, 2018 gained access to the state assembly complex while the police barricaded further access to the house, Ortom’s aide has confirmed.

Ortom’s spokesman, Tahav Agerzua, said the lawmakers took over the Assembly complex to sit and pass the impeachment notice while the police blocked further access.

Meanwhile, a detachment of heavily armed policemen have currently shutdown the Benue State House of Assembly. The policemen blocked the entrance to the Assembly complex, denying workers access.

Youths from Benue state have, in the early hours of Monday, as at 5:am, trooped en masse to block the Benue Assembly complex over what they claimed was plots by some politicians loyal to the All Progressives Congress, APC, led Federal government to impeach Governor Samuel Ortom who has dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Reports not yet very clear claim the security personnel are currently in a clash with the Benue youths over the alleged invasion of State’s Assembly complex as well as the planned plot to impeach the Governor.

Reports also claim the police team is firing tear gas to disperse the youths. Recall that Governor Ortom had given reasons as to why he dumped the APC to include that his people, the Benue state youths, had forced him  to leave the party or cease to be their governor.
