Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose

As the national outrage over the killing of more than 120 defenceless civilians by Fulani herdsmen continues, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has appealed to Nigerians to ask President Muhammadu Buhari just one question over the killings.

The question is ”Has anyone been arrested for the killing of over 200 people in Plateau?”

In a tweet on Wednesday, Governor Fayose described the Plateau killings as a national disaster that should attract decisive actions not speeches.

President Buhari had on Tuesday in Plateau during a visit to the state said it is unfair to blame him for the herdsmen-farmer crisis that has claimed many lives in parts of the country.

“Farmer knows that the Nigerian cattle herder that he knows doesn’t carry nothing more than a stick, occasionally sometimes something to cut grass to feed his cattle.”

“But the present herder, I am told, carries AK47 and people are even blaming me for not talking to them because maybe (they say) I look like one of them.

“There is some injustice in these aspersions.”

But Governor Fayose in a tweet this morning said: ”One question Nigerians should be asking President Buhari is; has anyone been arrested for the killing of over 200 people in Plateau?
200 people killed in one day by people said to retaliating loss of cows is a national disaster that should attract decisive actions not speeches.”
