The brutal killings by Fulani herdsmen are fast increasing the worsening insecurity in the land. From Akwa Ibom to Edo, Delta, Benue states, etc, the story is the same. Fulani cattle have evaded everywhere destroying farms across the nation. The recent killing of 10 youths in Ughelli, Delta State on February 25 and the invasion of residents of Ajir town in Benue State where 13 passengers were attacked on April 9, killing nine and murdering the mother of a three-weeks-old baby, is one killing too many. The Fulani herdsmen have infiltrated every town and village across the country destroying farmland in the process. When challenged, they always throw caution to the wind killing and maiming anybody in sight. I know in Nigeria, we do not value life hence anybody can kill at will. The above incidents are just among many unreported killings by the same group. It is time to tame these herdsmen who are bent on violating existing laws by leaving far north to invade people’s farms in the west, east and south. Government must act now and fast too to avoid more killings.
