While Ortom spoke at the mass recital of 73 victims of shepherd attacks in Makurdi, he insisted his government would not be intimidated. The law prohibits inter alia the movement of cattle on foot within the state.

Defending his action, Ortom stated that "it's the best way to go and it's in line with global best practices." The governor also accused the "silence" of President Muhammadu Buhari's government for the murders. He complained that if the federal government had responded to the reports he gave about the threats of attacks by Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, the murders

He also demanded the arrest of the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore.
