    Ortom was attacked by about 15 gunmen suspected to be herdsmen while on a visit to his farm in the state.

    He alleged that the gunmen trailed his convoy to the river bank where he was on foot with his security details and opened fire on them.

    The attack on Ortom has generated public condemnations from his colleagues in the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, who described the development as shocking and a rude awakening.

    The President had on Sunday ordered security agencies to carry out what he called an “open and transparent” investigation into the attack.
