Benue killings: Fani-Kayode reacts to summoned Tiv DPO to Abuja over killing of fulani


Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, on Wednesday reacted to the summon of a Divisional Police Officer, DPO, of Tiv extraction to Abuja over the killing of Fulani herdsmen.

In a tweet via his Twitter handle, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chieftain wondered why a Tiv DPO should be summoned to Abuja when no Fulani terrorists have been arrested, despite killing of several Nigerians.

He wrote, “Thousands are slaughtered by Fulani terrorists, yet Buhari has refused to arrest even one of the killers.

“Fulani are killed in Benue and not only are dozens of Tiv youth arrested the next day but the Tiv DPO is summoned to Abuja and accused of helping his people to kill Fulanis!”

Recall that the former Minister had earlier insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari was in support of the killings perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists.

Fani-Kayode had alleged that the country is owned by Jihadists, which President Buhari is a part of.
