Stop Lying, Fulani Herdsmen Move With Arms - Taraba State Gov. Lambastes Buhari


The governor of Taraba state, Arc. Darius Ishaku, on weekend described as false and misleading, claims by President Muhammadu Buhari that Fulani herdsmen don't move around with AK-47 rifles but sticks and machetes.

President Buhari had defended his Fulani kinsmen in far away U.S. He said, The problem of herders in Nigeria is a very long historical thing. The Nigerian herders don't carry anything more than a stick and occasionally a machete to cut down foliage and give it to their animals, these ones are carrying AK47,・President Buhari had said in defense of killer herdsmen.

However, speaking to journalists at a special awards dinner organised in Abuja by the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, vanguard reports that Governor Ishaku insisted that it couldn't have been imaginary that farmers were killed with AK-47 rifles in their clash with herdsmen in Taraba and Benue states. It is absolutely wrong for the President to say herdsmen don't move around with guns. I mean, who then kills who? It couldn't have been imaginary that people have been killed with AK-47 in the farmers-herdsmen clashes.

He simply have to stand up to the truth and do something to stop the killings,・he said.
On the effects of the recurrent clashes between farmers and herdsmen on the health sector in Taraba, Governor Ishaku who bagged an award of excellent service in the health sector at the occasion, said: The current insecurity has put a lot of pressure on our health facilities much more than we anticipated. We already have between 100,000 to 150,000 persons displaced as a result of the clashes. Gov. Ishaku stated.

BiafraTV wish to thank Governor Ishaku for telling Jihadist President Buhari that he is a liar, which Eastern Nigerian governors can't do because of second term in office bid.
