Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose has has recounted his ordeal after paying a condolence visit to the Governor of Benue state.
The governor paid a visit to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state on Thursday to condole with him over the recent kiiling of his people by the herdsmen.
The Governor said he was moved to tears after visiting the graveyard of 73 innocent people killed by Fulani herdsmen. He commiserated with Benue people over the loss.
He said, “Those who committed less offence like hate speech are made to face the wrath of the law while those unleashing mayhem on others are treated as sacred cows.”
He described the crisis in Benue State as ethnic cleansing and urged the people not to allow others to cow them, saying, “This nation belongs to our forefathers and they bequeathed it to us and we should not allow anyone to chase others away, this country belongs to all of us.
“I went to the graveside today and I was moved to tears. How can people be slaughtered like cows? There is no terrorism more than what has happened in Benue.
“I charge the Federal Government to stop ruling Nigeria with double standard. Killing innocent souls, sacking their communities is nothing but terrorism.”
He however called on the Federal Government to immediately put an end to the constant killing, while also charging the FG to stop ruling Nigeria with double standard.
