A pressure group known as Team Freedom For All has condemned the unending extrajudicial killings of innocent people in some parts of the country, by Fulani herdsmen, reprimanding the APC-led Federal Government for its silence over the killings.

It made the condemnation in a press statement signed by Executive members of the group: Mr. Adebisi Adeola, Group Coordinator; Mr. Mayowa Okekale, Publicity Secretary; Mr. Saliu Akeem, Publicity Secretary, Ekiti Youth Frontal Movement; and Mr. Adebomojo Akeem, Coordinator, Ekiti Youth Frontal Movement. The group explained that one of the overriding onuses of the Nigeria Police under the Federal Government is to protect lives and properties of its citizens from external and internal attacks; fortify the country for infrastructural and economic development as well as growth. However, the group regretted that what is obtainable under the government is nothing but a mirage and total fallout of the normalcy.

It said that “every well-meaning Nigerian should begin to query why the Federal Government, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari that promised change and sanctuary of territorial integrity, has maintained stillness on the continuous massacres of innocent Nigerians by Fulani herdsmen and the source of their gunroom.”

“We are aware of the sect’s activities in Southern Kaduna, Benue, Cross Rivers, Ondo, Plateau and Osun State that resulted to loss of thousands of lives without a genuine intervention by the security contraption,” the group lamented.

It added that “the bothersome aspect is the fact that Nigerian police has failed to arrest or parade any of the killers before a court of competent jurisdiction to serve as a deterrent to others, but technically defending the awful orchestrations by paying them stipend; deceiving Nigerians that the sects are from neighbouring countries.”

The pressure group also recalled “the one-sided role played by Nigeria Police in the Ile-Ife crisis that erupted between the Yorubas and the Fulani, saying it is another indication of weakness and professional gaffe on the part of the Federal Government that should be a custodian of law and justice.”

It said: “We are made to understand that both the host (Yorubas) and the visitors (Fulanis) engaged themselves but to our surprise, only Yorubas were arrested and paraded.”

While saying that the Nigerian government, under the leadership of President Buhari, has outrightly failed in its responsibility of securing lives and properties of its citizens, Team Freedom For All demands that the Federal Government should be responsive and liable to its responsibilities; that the Presidency should condemn the incessant killings in strong terms; that the Nigerian Police should make public, the identities of those herdsmen that are terrorising the country within 72 hours and, that Nigerian Government should charge any one culpable for terrorism and treason.

The group finally admonished Non-Governmental Organisations, unpretentious activists, unswerving leaders, groups, and all well-meaning Nigerians, to set aside party affiliations and condemn the herdsmen mayhem in Nigeria before it reprobates to a deadly reprisal and self-defence, which is likely to distress our co-existence and unity as a nation.
