Fulani herdsmen Beheading Adamawa PDP chairman stirs debate

Reports that suspected Fulani herdsmen beheaded the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Bare ward in the Numan Local Government Area, Adamawa State, Charles Chrisanthus, have caused serious debate among Nigerians on social media.

According to reports, the deceased was killed in the presence of his wife, Dorcas and her four months old son, in his farm on August 29, 2018.

Dorcas, wife of the deceased PDP chieftain, in an interview with newsmen at the State Criminal Investigation Department said the police are shielding her husband’s killers.

Dorcas, who had gone to lodge her complaint on Tuesday, at the state CID told Northern City News that only justice for her slain husband would bring her peace.

She said:

“His attackers led by our Fulani neighbours repeatedly stabbed him on the back and on his stomach before beheading my husband in our farm and made away with his head,” she said.

A lot of commenters have lambasted the present administration over the way it is handling the excesses of Fulani herdsmen.  Whereas some have said the killing wasn’t carried out by Fulani herdsmen.
