Security operatives on Saturday denied Benue Governor Sam Ortom access to the Air Force Base on his way to receive Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

The Vice President was on his way to Wukuri, Taraba State en route to Benue to attend the convocation of the Federal University, Wukari.

Addressing journalists at Government House Makurdi, Ortom described the action of the security operatives as unacceptable, breach of protocol, and politics have taken too far.

Fuming, the Governor said: “How can I go to the Air Force base and I am bounced back? In my State? It’s politics taken too far and somebody was account for it.

“I feel so sad that there are certain things you don’t play politics with it and I must continue to talk about this injustice.”
