Again, Mimiko Raises Alarm Over Fulani Herdsmen’s Attack

Olusegun-MimikoGovernor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has raised the alarm over the incessant killings and wanton destruction of property by Fulani herdsmen in various parts of the country.
The governor, therefore, urged religious leaders to pray more for peace in the country.
Mimiko was speaking in Akure, the state capital when the executive members of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) visited him.
According to Gov. Mimiko, Nigeria would be heading towards a precipice if the heinous crimes against humanity being committed by the Fulani herdsmen, was not checked.
He charged religious leaders to pray fervently for the unity, peace and development of the country, which he said is currently being threatened by challenges.
He also used the occasion of the visit to debunk the claim by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC) that Ondo was one of the states where bail-out funds meant to offset salary arrears, was diverted for other purposes.
Mimiko told the religious leaders that the state has written to the ICPC to correct the claim.
He faulted the report that only N7.9billion was paid to workers out of the N9.4 billion bailout paid to the state, saying his administration added N50million to the bail-out to pay the workers’ salaries.
