Fulani herdsmen organisation, Miyetti Allah, has lambasted Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, over his battle against criminal herdsmen.
The association sees the war as a persecution of the herdsmen.
Its Secretary, in a statement, saluted Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, who said the Fulani had right to be in any forest and carry AK 47 while on duty.
The statement said Akeredolu as a “disgrace to the legal profession” while also berating his Benue State counterpart for the anti-grazing law it enacted.
The statement read, “Governor Bala Mohammed has treaded where angels are scared to tread in the past. He has taken what every politician will consider as political risk in the past by holding divergent views where others have failed or chickened out. So, his current position on the herders/farmers conversation is not strange or out of context.
“Governor Bala Mohammed has refused to be like Governor of Benue State H.E. Samuel Ortom, whose only achievement is the rising of ethnic militia and gang leaders that have been visiting mayhem of killings in his state.
“Akeredolu will be held accountable for the ongoing genocide against innocent pastoralist and northerners living in the South-West.”
