A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has described the Nigerian President as a mass murderer and ethnic cleanser.
Fani-Kayode had been reacting over the massacre that took place on the 23rd of June in Plateau State where over 200 people were slaughtered by suspected herdsmen.
Many Nigerians had expressed disappointment towards the Nigerian Police Force for allowing the bandits to operate for 7 hours in 11 villages without intervention.
Reacting to the statement by the United Nations who accused the Buhari’s government of instigating and encouraging the murderers, the former Minister urged the UN to call the crime what it actually is.
He said “Now that the United Nations have finally admitted that Buhari and his government are “encouraging murderers” perhaps they would find the courage and decency to call what is going on in Nigeria precisely what it is: state-sponsored mass murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide!
“When 11 villages are burnt to the ground and 200 people are slaughtered in one night it is called “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing” and not just “murder”.
“Buhari and his government are mass murderers, ethnic cleansers and genocidal maniacs who have cowered our people into subjugation and submission by establishing an atmosphere of fear, intimidation and terror”
