Speaking during the passing out parade of the second batch of the State Volunteer Community Guards in Makurdi, Ortom revealed that he had applied to the Federal Government for approval to procure AK-47 assault rifles, but had yet to get a response.

The governor urged the guards to work strictly within the ambit of the law and to remain apolitical, conscientious, vigilant and strong.
