Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has condemned the gruesome murder of Reverend Father Ferdinand Nguban of St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Aye-Twar village in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of Benue State by yet to be identified gunmen.

The Governor who expressed dismay over the aforementioned heinous act wondered why a harmless Priest would become the target of the armed militia.

Ortom who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary Terver Akase, reassured the people of Katsina-Ala and Sankera as a whole that the State Government would ensure that those responsible for the killing and other attacks in that part of the state are apprehended and made to face the Law.
