Catholic Archbishop, Cardinal Onaiyekan Condemns How President Buhari Reacted To The Herdsmen Killings
The President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has again been given the stick over its handling of the Fulani Herdsmen crisis in some parts of the country.
According to the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) were treated unfairly as they were quickly proscribed as terrorists for their agitations while the Herdsmen who have gone around killing have not met the fate.
In his address to the Catholic Singles Forum (CSF) yesterday in Abuja, Cardinal Onaiyekan stated that if the government does not get serious with security, then people might actually pick up arms to defend themselves.
NIGERIA NEWS obtained the following from the meeting: “The federal government was quick to declare Biafra agitators as terrorists. But Fulani herdsmen are killing people today and similar action has not been taken against them.
