Herdsmen and the rest of us

Herdsmen

Herdsmen

Sir: I must begin by condemning the slaughtering of Benue people by Fulani herdsmen.

However, the herdsmen are now killing the Idomas in the state more than the Tivs and the same herdsmen have invaded some states in Igbo-speaking areas of the country and sexually harassed their women. Their activities were reported in most of the national dailies. The Idomas and the Igbos, who were jubilating over the massacre of the Tivs by the herdsmen before are now the victims of Fulani’s massacre.

It is now obvious that the reason for massacring people anywhere the herdsmen go is beyond just seeking grazing areas for their cows. There is a need for collective effort to fight against the ungodly mission of the herdsmen.
