– Fuani Herdsmen possession of firearms is illegal .
The Methodist Bishop of Abakaliki Diocese, Rt Rev Lawson Elom Tuesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call Fulani herdsmen to order.
Speaking yesterday in Abakaliki during the 22nd synod of the church, the Bishop urged the Federal Government to initiate a law prohibiting herdsmen from being armed with any dangerous weapons.
He said that only stiff penalties would reduce the incessant killings by the Fulani herdsmen which he said has made them to be perceived like Boko Haram.
“Can Buhari, our dear President who is a Fulani, rise up to this challenge before this evil perpetrated by these our brothers begin to affect the socio-political and economic life of this our dear country?” He queried.
What is the President of this nation, who doubles as the senior Minister for Petroleum doing to change this hardship on his led?’’
He advised the president to use the money he is recovering from looters and repair oil refineries to enable the country harvest the crude oil in the country and refine the oil also in the country.
