Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has reacted to the comments made by his Plateau State counterpart, Simon Lalong, about the prohibition of open grazing in Benue.

Addressing a delegation of the Arewa Consultative Forum on Friday at his office in Makurdi, the Benue governor said he was pained by the comments and consequently called Lalong who denied making such statement.

“Somebody drew my attention on Thursday that Lalong made such comments that he warned me not to implement the law and I was wondering if my colleague from Plateau State could say that; so I called him and he told me he did not say it,” said Ortom.

“But later, when I watched it on Channels Television, he castigated me beyond what I thought a colleague of mine should but I’ve forgiven him.”
