President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that a ‘open and clear enquiry’ into the attack on Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom be conducted.

Buhari issued the directive in a statement issued by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, titled “President Buhari condemns assault on Governor Samuel Ortom, orders exhaustive, open investigation.”

Shehu, quoting the president, says all those involved in the attack should face the full wrath of the law.

“Let there be an open and transparent investigation, and whoever is linked to it should be caught and be made to face the law,” the President reportedly directed.

The statement reads, “The President welcomes the dispatch of a high-level team of crack investigators to the state from the police headquarters in Abuja, urging the officers to uncover who, or whatsoever, was behind the attacks and bring them to justice.

“In expressing his sympathies, and that of the government of the federation to Governor Ortom and all Benue indigenes, President Buhari said the unfortunate incident must not be politicized, reiterating that an attack on one Nigerian is an attack on all Nigerians.

“The President directed the police to undertake a thorough investigation into the incident involving the governor and into all such incidents affecting individuals and communities in the state.”
