Governor Ortom after my life - Benue State University SUG President claims

Written By Idoma Television on Thursday, July 16, 2015 | 1:08:00 AM

The Student Union President of Benue State University, BSU, Mr Bobby Tavershima, while trying to hold a peaceful meeting with students yesterday morning, was attacked by some thugs who claimed to be acting on orders from the state Governor, Dr Samuel Ortom.

The president narrated that this happened while he was trying to rally students together in order to meet and issue out a communique to the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU who have been on strike to reconsider their stance.

“You know the government is paying and we wanted to come together to draw up a communique to ASUU, begging them to help stop this problem of strike. I sent out a text and it had nothing to do with protest.”

He emphasized that the purpose of the meeting wasn’t a protest and had made this known to all concerned the previous day, including the state security services, SSS, police and school security.

On getting to school the next morning, one by the name “Sunny”, a graduate of political science from BSU, along with the National President of the Community of Tiv Students, CTS, Emmanuel Nor and two others drove into the university to disrupt the meeting.

“By the time I was talking the them, the CTS president just came in and was shouting, calling me names. Said look at me, that why am I calling a meeting when we know very well that the security of the people are not guaranteed.”
