Ekiti state governor yesterday told Fulani herdsmen that the killings and atrocities that they have been accused of carrying out is giving everyone from the tribe, including President Buhari, a bad name. At a meeting held with leaders of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria and local Hunters from the state yesterday January 21st 2017, Governor Fayose said the killings and attacks is denting the names of notable Nigerians from the community.

This killing is giving Fulani people a bad name. If there are no good people among them, how would General Buhari rise to be president? There are doctors, lawyers, engineers and other notable professionals among you. This is denting their names. The greatest of men are the peace makers. Even though President Buhari does not send people to kill, it is spoiling his name. We are to make sure the killing stops.”

He called on the leaders of the Herdsmen association to caution their members against killing anyone in the state. He stressed that he was going to arrest the leaders for any further killing or attacks in the state.

“We won’t be intimidated by the terror of the few. The moment you are caught, you will face the law. The killing by fulani is worse than Boko Haram. We want one Nigeria because we have gone far. Anyone harbouring criminals will not know peace. Enough is enough. Life is sacred and must be treated as such. I’m calling on the Federal Government to be firm, when actions are taken against these mindless individuals, this killing will stop. It is because they are taking it like a family affair; this is not in the interest of Nigeria. Ordinary Nigerians can’t carry AK47 or pump action.

''If you (herdsmen) still want to stay among us, you must accept the responsibility to ensure that none of our people’s farms is destroyed by herdsmen any longer. None of our people must be killed by your men. If any killing or destruction of farms of our people occurs again in that area, I will ensure that I use the law to fight you their leaders. This is the last warning.” he said
