Fani-Kayode reacts to Fulani herdsmen’s reason for killing Benue people
Recall that a leader of Miyetti Allah cattle breeders in Benue state, Garus Gololo had revealed that attacks by herdsmen was a reprisal for alleged theft of their cows.
In a chat with BBC Pidgin, Gololo explained that the herdsmen were only defending themselves from thieves.
He claimed that over 1000 cows were stolen at Nengere, a community in the state when the herdsmen were moving out of Benue to Taraba state.
Reacting to the claim, the former Minister wondered if Nigeria is still a country that is united.
In a tweet, Fani-Kayode wrote: “We attacked Benue community because they attacked and stole our cows”- Myetti Allah.
“Over 150 innocent men,women and children were hacked to pieces in cold blood because of cows? Are we really one country?”
