Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has said some unidentified Fulani persons are threatening him over the anti-open grazing law recently enacted in the state.
Ortom stated this on Wednesday while addressing members of National Council of Tiv Youths who were protesting utterances by Fulani leaders against Tiv people.
The governor said he would not rescind his decision while stating that the law would commence latest November 2017.
It could be recalled Ortom had signed into law a bill prohibiting open grazing of cattle and livestock in the state.
He said; “Just this morning (Wednesday) one Fulani called my wife and asked her to warn me that I (Ortom) am joking with them (Fulani), but my response when my wife told me this, is that am not joking, this law has come to stay.
