FG will be held responsible if Gov. Ortom is assassinated-Gov. Wike

Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has warned that the Federal Government will be held responsible if the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom is assassinated.

He stressed that if the Benue State governor is killed, the country could be plunged into another civil war.
