Governor Ortom, Contradicts His Deputy , Abounu's Interview, Denies Giving Land To Fulani As He Arrive Nnamdi Azikiwe's Airport

The Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom, who has been away to South Africa on an economic summit where he went to woo investors into the state made the remark as he arrived Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport.
 Even though his Deputy ,Engr Benson Abounu  had earlier granted a press release on why Agatu land was ceded to Fulani herdsmen for grazing. Ortom on his part contradicts his Deputy's press release.  

Benson Abounu' words;

“The agreement to allow cattle of the Fulani people who are known to the Agatu graze on that piece of land does not transfer ownership of the island to the Fulani. It was a temporary arrangement to stop the Fulani massing on the Nasarawa bank of the River Benue from crossing over Agatu settlement area.

We have not ceded any part of Agatu land to Fulani people, those spreading the rumour are mischief makers, the same people we booted out in 2015.

The question is, who should we believe?
