Former Deputy National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for his silence on the killing of over 40 people by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Igangan, Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State.
According to Chief Olabode George, Buhari’s silence over the killings leaves much to be desired since his aides are very quick to react to news concerning kidnappings in the country. He accused Buhari for being a nepotistic president as he has covered his Fulani people doing evil deeds.
he said. “President Muhammadu Buhari’s silence on the killings of people of Igangan community is dangerous and the fact that he is a Fulani man makes the matter worse.
“I know his media aids to be very fast in reacting to issues but their silence on this particular incident is very suspicious,”
This was just as he pointed out that the killings by the Fulani herdsmen “in the wee hours of last Sunday has brought the seething malady right to our doorsteps. No one is safe anymore.
“The senseless killings, the cruel inhuman massacre of the Igangan natives in the Yoruba heartland by suspected herdsmen in the wee hours of last Sunday has brought the seething malady right to our doorsteps. No one is safe anymore.
“I wonder, what hate, what evil, what madness will propel anyone of sane mind to plunge into the night with weapons of war, seeking out fellow citizens for pillage and murder? It puzzles rationality. It benumbs the senses.
“The Igangan massacre is now a watershed in these ceaseless psychopathic killings that now pester our country without let. It will continue to haunt us all.”
