Probe The Sources Of Weapons For Fulani Herdsmen, CAN Tells Buhari

CAN to FG: Probe sources of weapons for Fulani herdsmen

CAN President, Rev. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle

The President, Chris­tian Association of Nigeria (CAN), his eminence, Rev Samson Olasupo Ayokunle has asked the Federal Govern­ment to probe the sources of the ammuntion being used by the murderous Fulani herdsmen with a view to stop their criminal activities.
A statement by the press secretary to the CAN presi­dent, Bayo Oyedeji stated that Ayokunle asked the security agencies to stop treating the criminals among the herdsmen with kid gloves urged the gov­ernment to rise up to the challenges if the nation must have peace and unity.
“The issues of the ram­paging and murderous Fu­lani herdsmen in different parts of our nation must be stopped. They block high­ways to kidnap and rob, inflicting injuries on inno­cent Nigerians and killing them like fowls.
“No stone should be left unturned in bringing the perpetrators of such crimes to book. Security agencies should stop telling us that they are ‘unknown gun­men.’
“Those arrested should be conclusively prosecuted to serve as deterrent to oth­ers. Their sources of am­munition must be unveiled and those behind the sup­ply should be proscuted. Victims of such senseless violent acts deserve com­pensation especially the people of Southern Ka­duna, Agatu community of Benue state, several com­munties in the Eastern part of the country and South-South.”
Ayokunle who decried the menace of unem­ployment in the country warned those in the posi­tion of authorities to cre­ate enabling environment before it is too late.
“Unemployment of the able bodied youths in our nation, especially gradu­ates of various tertiary in­stitutions is another wor­risome issue; such requires enabling environment for their employment. All the harsh economic measures must be dropped for busi­nesses to flourish. A stitch in time saves nine.”   (Authority)
