Fayose Condemns Arrest of 76 Igbo Villagers over Protest against Fulani Herdsmen

Fayose Condemns Arrest of 76 Igbo Villagers over Protest against Fulani Herdsmen

Published by Family Writers

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has slammed the security agencies for the arrest of 76 Igbo villagers from Ugwuneshi
Autonomous community, Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State following a clash between the natives
and Fulani herdsmen.

Miffed by the action, Fayose said: “It has gotten to a level that lovers of peace in Nigeria must speak out against this keg of gunpowder which is the threat that the Fulani herdsmen have become.”

About 76 men from the Ugwuneshi Autonomous community were last Thursday arrested and whisked away by “men in military uniform” after they protested the continued destruction of their crops and farmlands by Fulani herdsmen and their cattle who settled in the area without permission.

In his official reaction to the alleged arrest, Governor Fayose, who spoke through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said President Muhammadu Buhari should address the killing of Nigerians and destruction of farmlands by the Fulani herdsmen.

The governor, who called for the immediate and unconditional release of the 76 Igbo villagers, said the President Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government must not give impression that the Fulani herdsmen were lords in other people’s lands.

Fayose said the Fulani herdsmen were giving impression that they now own Nigeria and could perpetrate any crime and get away with it.

    God bless you for you are a lover of truth. The Devils who call themselves governors of the South East never for once spoke against these atrocities by the hausas /fulani TERRORISTS. All they do is eat the remnants given to them by their enemies after the ENEMIES have harvested the crops from Biafra land.
