More Nigerians Blame FG For Herdsmen Killings
Hundreds of lives have been wasted, children made orphans, farms that would have contributed to the growth of the economy destroyed.
The beginning of the new year has been filled with sorrow, blood and tears for Nigerians resident in Benue.
Nigerians have accused the federal government of allowing the attacks to escalate by treating the matter with kid gloves.
Some even went as far accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of turning blind eyes because the herdsmen are his 'people'.
Last week, there was another attack by Fulani herdsmen in Benue State. Gory pictures of people, including children, butchered like animals, were copiously shared.
Anytime there is a massacre of people in a state by Fulani herdsmen like it occurred last week in Benue State for the umpteenth time, there is an outcry by Nigerians for the Federal Government to take action.
Most times, there is not even a verbal response from the Buhari government. Even when there is a verbal response, it is a plea for people to live together in peace or a promise to arrest the perpetrators.
But nobody ever gets arrested.
Nigerians are disappointed and they are no longer mincing words.

VP Osinbajo says that Nigerians should not defend themselves against Fulani terrorists when they are attacked but should pray for them instead.— Femi Fani-Kayode (@realFFK) January 8, 2018
Clearly the VP has lost his mind. He is nothing but a lily-livered coward who would say and do anything to please the Fulani. Shame!
Innocent people were killed & slaughtered in Benue State yet the so called president could not fly in to see things for himself. But when his son crashed with a motor bike, he ran to the hospital to see his son. Are all Nigerians not supposed to be his children? #PrayforBenue— Sapiosexual (@ChukwukaJerri) January 10, 2018
This can never happen in Ekiti state under Fayose watch, Benue state governor is as clueless as the president towards the herdsmen issue. pic.twitter.com/PC05StKE0X— Valentine Ekanem (@ValentineEkanem) January 10, 2018
You cannot go and kill innocent people in Benue State because you don’t like a law passed by the state government. I condemn this terrorist action by Miyetti Allah in the strongest possible terms. Government must ensure that the perpetrators are arrested and made to face justice.— Dr. Joe Abah (@DrJoeAbah) January 9, 2018
Can you imagine, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association is giving the Benue state conditions for stoping the killings! Is this not madness? Is this not an admission of guilt? Only in Buhari’s Nigeria can this happen. They should be dead or in jail instead of giving conditions!— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) January 9, 2018
