Why you must not kill Fulani herdsmen: Governor Okowa to people of Delta

The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has urged people of the state not to kill Fulani herdsmen who invade their communities and destroy their farmlands and produce.

Okowa urged aggrieved people of the state to allow government find lasting solution to the problem, rather than take the laws into their hand.

The governor made the appeal while speaking at a town hall meeting held at Oghara, the administrative headquarters of Ethiope West Local Government Area of the state.

According to Okowa, “You see, it is a very complex issue; it is a national issue and we have all been shouting about it even at the Governors Forum. It is not peculiar to Delta State. In fact, not long ago, a whole village was destroyed in Benue State.

“I do not believe the criminal elements among the herdsmen are being backed by certain military personnel, as being claimed in some quarters. However, I believe the federal government must make a direct policy statement.”

His plea was in response to the general outcry by several contributors at the town hall meeting that Fulani herdsmen were responsible for the scarcity of food in the state.
