Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has described as worrisome, the silence of President Muhammadu Buhari on the alleged killing of harmless Nigerians by Fulani herdsmen.
“Wanton murder of over 300 Agatu people of Benue State and the silence of the Federal Government on this genocide is a clear invitation to chaos,” Fayose said in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
“Farmlands costing billions of naira have been destroyed in the South-West, South-East and North-Central zones. One wonders how Nigerians can go back to farming when farmers are losing billions of naira worth of crops to destruction of their farmlands by Fulani herdsmen and the Federal Government is doing nohing about it,” the governor said.
Fayose sympathised with the victims and their families, adding that the Federal Government must stop playing ostrich to the menace of the Fulani Herdsmen.
