The Governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose , has said that the ongoing attack by Fulani herdsmen may not be unconnected with the 2019 elections.
Speaking on Politics Today, a programme on Channels TV, Fayose said, ”Security is worse than ever. People will wake up and say they’re herdsmen and level an entire community under the watch of Mr President”
”Something will happen somewhere, three to four people will die, you’ll leave where a community was wiped out and go and be greeting three people”
”They have improved in the tackling of boko haram menace but it is currently being replaced by herdsmen. Sometimes i ask myself are these people truly herdsmen? We should ask questions o. People that used to carry stick to drive cows are now carrying AK 47, this is how Boko haram started. Who are those behind them? I am beginning to think this is another strategy to be used for 2019 ”
