IGP gives directive to investigate assassination attempt on Ortom

Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), on Sunday ordered an investigation into the attack on the convoy of Samuel Ortom, Governor of Benue state.

Recall that Ortom escaped death on Saturday after some gunmen attacked him while on a visit to his farm.

The Police Spokesman, Frank Mba, in a statement released on Sunday, said the IGP had instructed the commissioner of police and a team of specialized investigators in the state to carry “painstaking investigations” into the attack.

Adamu assured residents of the state of its commitment to ensure security.

Part of the statement read: “The IGP has also specifically instructed the CP to carry out painstaking investigations into the incident and ensure the arrest and prosecution of persons indicted in the course of the investigations.
