Social media post on Ortom’s son,s involvement in murder case false, malicious -Aide

The Special Adviser to Benue state governor, Mr Terver Akase, has described as false and malicious posts that the governor’s son was involved in murder case.
Akase said the post was not only false and malicious but is also targeted at tarnishing the hard-earned reputation of the Governor.
“We saw a post on social media made by one Benjamin Benjamin Bju and shared by several others alleging that Governor Samuel Ortom’s son murdered someone abroad.
“Though the writer was specific about Governor Ortom’s name, he failed to mention the governor’s son whom he claimed had killed somebody and the name of the country where the said incident took place.
“We find the social media post as politics taken too far. The post is not only false and malicious but is also targeted at tarnishing the hard-earned reputation of the governor.”
He explained that none of Governor Ortom’s children has been involved in any murder case or a violence-related incident home and abroad and challenged those behind the post to show evidence to back their allegation.
He stated that the government had already alerted Benue people to expect the sponsored campaign of calumny against Governor Ortom now that elections are approaching saying “the objective of those sponsoring the smear campaign is to discredit and distract the Governor and by extension, the entire PDP in Benue State.”
