Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation, has claimed that suspected Fulani herdsmen have killed five policemen and burnt two of their vehicles in Benue state.
Fani-Kayode, on Wednesday, said despite the barbarous atrocity, nobody has been declared wanted and neither have the perpetrators been pursued or apprehended.
“Fulani herdsmen have killed 5 policemen in Benue and have burnt 2 of their Hilux vehicles. Despite this barbarous atrocity no-one has been declared wanted and neither have the perpetrators been pursued or apprehended. They are still at large and they remain fully armed and dangerous.
“To add to this there are media reports this morning that Fulani herdsmen attacked an airforce jet in Adamawa. As usual, no arrests have been made and neither have the security forces launched a counteroffensive against these heartless terrorists.
“The bitter truth needs to be told and that truth is that these Fulani herdsmen are a plague. They are evil. They are vermin. They are murderous parasites and homicidal maniacs that feed on the flesh of our people. No-one is safe from them.
“It is time for us to decide whether we are really compelled or constrained to continue to live in the same nation as such heartless creatures and violent terrorists. There is no fellowship between light and darkness.”
“It is time for us to have a referendum on the issue of our continued nationhood and to exercise our right of self-determination. If we cannot live together in peace then let us go our separate ways.”
