Benue State Government React to Prof. Umar Claims

In reaction to the claims made by Prof Umar that Benue belongs to Fulani Herdsmen by conquest, Governor Ortom of Benue state has declared that Professor Umar Labdo Muhammad lack facts to his claims. 

Professor Umar Labdo Muhammad of the Faculty of Humanities, Northwest University, Kano in a Facebook post that went viral on Thursday, had also insisted that no one can expel the Fulani from Benue and that Benue State belongs to the Fulani by conquest.

Reacting on behalf of the governor, the Chief Press Secretary to the Benue State Governor, Terve Akase, demanded that the professor provide evidence to back up his claims.
According to Akase, it was unprofessional for the Don to come up with such claims without properly acquainting himself with enough points to back up his claims.

Akase said he (Prof. Muhammad) should be able show proofs of ownership of Benue by Fulani in books and also tell the people what year Benue was conquered.
He said, “Did he provide evidence to his claim?

“Which of the books written by great men proves what he said? He should also be able to tell us in what century the Fulani conquered Benue.
“Muhammad should be able to back up his claims that Benue is Fulani’s conquered land because you don’t just come up with such claims
