The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 13 governors are; Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto, Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue state, Douye Diri of Bayelsa, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu.

Baba made the commendation in Bauchi at the inauguration of the official distribution of 50 JAC pick-up vehicles procured by the state government for distribution to both conventional and non-conventional security agencies in the state.

What started as a sitcom starring Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom and his Bauchi State counterpart Bala Mohammed in a bizarre farmer-herdsmen exchange, later zig-zagged, morphed, and swept across the country in an expanded theatre of the absurd. At least four other governors have now been engulfed in the flame.  

While excoriating the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, for banning open grazing, and some governors in the South West geopolitical zone for speaking out against the killer herdsmen, the Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, on February 11, 2021, said: “The West doesn’t want to accommodate other tribes but we are accommodating your tribe in Bauchi. We have Yorubas who have stayed in Bauchi for over 150 years. Some of them have been made permanent secretaries in Gombe, Bauchi and Borno but because the Fulani man is practicing the tradition of pastoralism, he has been exposed to cattle rustlers who carry a gun, kill him and take away his cows: he has no option but to carry AK 47 because the government and the society are not protecting him.”
