Pastor and one-time vice presidential candidate, Tunde Bakare has criticised the federal government’s handling of fulani herdsmen’s bloodletting in Benue State and other parts of the country.
Reacting to the recent deaths of many locals in Benue State, Bakare wondered why government didn’t act in the face of prior information.
He also shared the view of many who question why a military operation was carried out in the southeast ostensibly against IPOB, but none in Benue and neighbouring states.
Addressing the press shortly after the Sunday Service, the Save Nigeria Group convener wondered why a government that deployed full military apparatus against the IPOB leader, who did not kill a soul, could find it impossible to deal decisively with herdsmen that have killed scores of innocent Nigerians across the country.
Bakare described government’s attitude as promoting injustice, capable of causing reprisal attacks and throw the country into unmanageable crisis. He said such act, in a saner clime, is capable of bringing down a government.
