Governor Samuel Ortom has lamented about the worsening insecurity in Benue state, stating that the rise in the population of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), due to insecurity in the North worries him.
The worried governor revealed he finds it hard getting down with his wife due to the crisis.
Governor Ortom while addressing a group of people at an event shared that he is deprived of sleep when he remembers the people in IDP camps who have been forced to flee their homes because of insurgency.
He went on to share that even when he’s getting down with his wife, he still thinks about the IDPs. In his words;
“Even when I’m on top of my wife and I remember the people in the IDP camp…”
Those in the crowd then added, “It goes flat” with Ortom smiling in agreement.
