IGBOEZUE International Organisation Nigeria and the Diaspora, has picked holes in President Muhammadu Buhari’s comments that the incessant and continuous killings in Nigeria were plans by enemies of peace to instigate war in the country for selfish purposes.
According to the group, “if there is any plan for instigating war in the country, his (Buhari’s) government must be held responsible for acting too late against the killer herdsmen alleged to be Fulani and failing to respond promptly and proffer solution to stop the killings.
National President of IIOND, Chief Pius Okoye said that “if anybody, group is plotting to instigate war in Nigeria, it is the Fulani herdsmen and the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria who openly claimed responsibility with their reasons for attacking and killing over 73 people in Benue State in January this year, without any of them being arrested.’’
Instead of taking action against the killer herdsmane, Okoye continued: “We wondered why President Buhari will turn round now to claim that the killing is a plot to instigate war in Nigeria, when he initially kept sealed lips on the activities of the herdsmen, ignored all calls by Nigerians to arrest leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, caution the herdsmen alleged to be mostly Fulanis, send troops to Benue state and visit the people of Benue State and other victims of the attacks immediately the incidents happened.”
