President and Convener of one of Nigeria’s foremost human rights Non-Governmental organization (NGO), Women Arise, Dr. Joe Odumakin, has charged the Federal Government of Nigeria to put an immediate end to the incessant killings by the Fulani herdsmen.
Odumakin in a press release on Monday stated that “the spate of killings in the country in recent days by Fulani herdsmen has become worrisome and totally unsettling”.
She added authorities in the land “have not done enough to convince the people that human life means much in this country as the alleged killers are moving about freely and even holding press conferences.”
Odumakin also noted that the gruesome mass murder which started in Benue “where the old and young were mercilessly massacred by rampaging herdsmen is now a killing spree which has extended to Taraba, Adamawa and anchoring in Kaduna where 10 people were recently killed on Saturday due to the nonchalant attitude of the government of the day.”
The frontline activist condoled all those who have lost dear ones “in the senseless killings” adding prayed may God heal their wounds.
