Governor Samuel Ortom made this statement at the Sesugh Maria Pilgrimage Center Ayati, Gwer East local government area of Benue state while maintaining that he will not back out from his mission to deliver the best for the state regardless of the threats.
Primate Ayodele during a service however revealed that those who are after the life of the governor are people within his circle and those he knows but God will not allow them perfect their plans.
‘’To the governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, You are a child of God, those that want to kill you will be exposed, God is on guard and nothing will happen to you. Truly, they want to assassinate you as I warned earlier but God will fail them, you will finish your term, they will be disappointed’’
‘’Those behind it will be exposed soon because you are God’s chosen, you have done governed diligently and committedly, God is with you. Those planning it are within your state, they are people you know but God is your guard’’
‘’All you need to do is remain close to God and be careful of your outings, you will finish your term well’’
It would be recalled that Primate Elijah Ayodele released a prophetic message in June 2021 for Governor Samuel Ortom that he foresees assassination attempts on his life. Then, he also warned him to be close to God because what he sees is very dangerous.
These were his words
‘’Benue State government must be careful against attack. He must be careful against accidents, I see plans to assassinate him. He must watch his outings as from now on.
‘’The State should avert ethnicity crisis and land crisis in Apa, Obi, Oju local government. The Governor is a very sincere politician but they want to destabilize his government. He must be careful and pray not to cry over anyone in his cabinet members.’’
With this recent outcry by the Governor, it confirms Primate Ayodele’s prophetic warnings which were released three months ago.
