Declare Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists - Bishop tells Buhari

Bishop of the Diocese of Badagry, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rt. Rev. Babatunde  Adeyemi, issued a statement yesterday condemning the killings of in Benue, Taraba and other parts of the country. 

The Bishop urged President Muhammadu Buhari to declare the killer herdsmen as terrorists, owing to the number of killings they had perpetrated.

He said, 
“We (Anglican Communion), condemn these mindless killings in our country. If the Indigenous People of Biafra could be termed a terrorist group, those who perpetrate these heinous acts should also be termed terrorists. But because these set of people come from a particular part of the country, they enjoy protection from the Federal Government.
“But we in the Anglican Communion shall not keep quiet because Christians are also being killed in cold blood. The Primate of the Anglican Communion has also spoken about it.  That is why we are telling President Muhammadu  Buhari to act now because we strongly believe that if he succeeds in addressing insecurity, his re-election ambition might sail through.”
Adeyemi also lamented that the killings were taking their toll on farmers, warning that the country risked food insecurity because many farmers could no longer go to their farms.
