Oshiomole says herdsmen not responsible for killings of Nigerians – Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has said the Fulani herdsmen are not responsible for the spate of killings in some states in the country.

He argued that those linking killings in some states of the federation are “turning the truth upside down to portray” the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in a bad light.

Oshiomhole said this on Saturday at a rally in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

He assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies were working hard to end insecurity in the country.

The former Labour leader urged Nigerians not, “to allow themselves to be deceived by the antics of selfish politicians in the country who are trying to give the security challenges in the country an ethnic colouration in order to score cheap political points.”

He noted that the security challenges were a ploy “to portray the government of President Muhammadu Buhari in bad light by portraying all the killings in some states in the country as the handiwork of herdsmen.

“Let me urge you to be more careful because this season, people are spreading untruth. People are being hired to turn the gospel upside down. They want us to believe that every problem should be explained in ethnic and religious terms.

“We have a problem and we must confront those problems. Criminals must be dealt with individually as criminals and government at all levels must work hard to protect every Nigerian regardless of tribe or religion.”
