Suspected Herdsmen BURN Ortom's Rice Farm

Suspected armed Fulani herdsmen on New Year’s eve stormed the rice farm belonging to Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, and set it ablaze.

The rice farm, located in Gbajimba in the Guma Local Government Area of the state, was said to have been razed down by the suspected herdsmen.

The rice farm, according to the Farm Manager, Kena Iordzua, covered about 250 hectares of land, with the burnt rice estimated at over N100m.

The farm manager told Punch that the herders came to the farm with a large number of cattle during the day and set it on fire at three different points.
