NIGERIA: Governor criticises Buhari over Benue killings

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has criticised President Buhari for not doing anything about the recent killings in Benue state.

Fulani herdsmen allegedly killed over 300 people in Agatu-Benue state.

The Governor also called on the Federal Government to find a lasting solution to the menace of the herdsmen.

Fayose said “Farmlands costing billions of naira have been destroyed in States in the South-West, South-East and North-Central zones of the country. One wonders how Nigerians can go back to farming when those already in the farms are losing billions of naira worth of crops to destruction of their farmlands by the Fulani Herdsmen and the Federal Government is not doing anything about it.”

He also said “If in the last one week, over 300 Nigerians were allegedly killed, several villages razed, with farmlands destroyed by Fulani herdsmen and President Buhari is comfortable junketing from one country to the other, something is definitely wrong somewhere.

“This is because in saner climes, no country will have over 300 of its citizens reportedly killed with thousands others displaced and the leader of such country will not rush home from wherever he is to take charge of the situation by himself.”

Fayose also reminded Buhari how he led Arewa leaders to Oyo state, to register his anger over the killing of  Fulani herdsmen in Saki.
