Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) President Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor has advised those clamouring for grazing reserves to embrace modern ranches.
Oritsejafor said 80 per cent of the people killed by Boko Haram members were Christians.
In his keynote address at CAN’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, the CAN President said: “The sect is advocating a jihad in Nigeria.
“Cattle rearers, especially Fulani herdsmen, should embrace modern ranches, which would be created with facilities for meat processing.
“After the meat is processed, cooling vans would transport them through out the country as it is done in Europe.
“The ranches should be located in the North, where the herdsmen are based. Just like petrol is refined and distributed all over the country.”
Oritsejafor said Boko Haram has a hidden agenda as what they want is not what Nigerians want; he called on the security agencies to tackle the security challenges.
“Who gave them AK 47 rifles? Who trained them on how to handle weapons?
I wonder why they have not been arrested and prosecuted
“I have received several threat text messages from the sect but I am not bothered because I will continue to speak the truth.”
