Primate Elijah Ayodele, the head of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, guaranteed Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State of his safety on Tuesday after he claimed that assassins had been hired to kill him.
Primate Ayodele revealed that God will soon disclose those plotting Ortom’s assassination.
Ortom had screamed out in response to an assassination attempt at the Sesugh Maria Pilgrimage Center Ayati in the state’s Gwer East Local Government Area, insisting that he would not abandon his goal to provide the best for the state despite of the dangers.
Primate Ayodele, on the other hand, stated that those after the governor’s life are individuals in his circle and those he knows, but God would not let them to carry out their intentions.
The cleric promised his media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, that Ortom will complete his tenure.
He, on the other hand, advised the governor to get closer to God and exercise caution.
According to Ayodele:
“To the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, You are a child of God; those that want to kill you will be exposed. God is on guard, and nothing will happen to you. Truly, they want to assassinate you, as I warned earlier, but God will fail them, you will finish your term, they will be disappointed.
“Those behind it will be exposed soon because you are God’s chosen, you have governed diligently and committedly, God is with you. Those planning it are within your state, they are people you know but God is your guard.
“All you need to do is remain close to God and be careful of your outings, you will finish your term well.”
