Insecurity: Ortom calls on Benue people to fast, pray
Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Saturday called on the people of the state to pray and fast against the rise in insecurity in the state.
Ortom who decried the increasing insecurity of the state noted that there were evil forces causing bloodshed and destruction in the state.
The governor made the clarion call at NKST Church, Iordye, Makurdi.
The State chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria in conjunction with the State Government had declared one-week prayer and fasting in the State commencing from Monday.
"There is a lot of bloodshed and destruction of property in the land and one thing is certain that only the devil can instigate human beings to kill his fellow beings and destroy the property."
Ortom who said that he believes in the efficacy of prayers added that God who had answered the prayers of people in the past would answer the prayers of the people in the state.
He urged the people to be prayerful, stressing that sincere prayers coupled with repentance and fasting be sustained particularly against the rising wave of crime stressing that such problems emanated from the spiritual realm.
Ortom expressed appreciation to the church for the support for his re-election and pledged to provide quality leadership that would uplift the fortunes of the state.
