Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to declare herdsmen allegedly behind killings in Benue and other parts of the country terrorists.
The governor made the demand during a meeting with local hunters and Benue indigenes in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
“Mr. President, declare killer herdsmen as terrorists group now, they are mindless, Godless and devilish,” he said.
Governor Fayose warned that killer herdsmen have taken over state forest reserves and were allegedly using the avenues as covers to unleash mayhem on the state.
According to him, some persons identified as Fulani herdsmen fondly called the ‘Bororo’ were making a surreptitious move into the outskirts of Ekiti with an alleged aim to kill and maim people and rubbish his anti-grazing law.
