Bloody Betrayal, As South-West Governors Beg Fulani Herdsmen Not To Leave Yorubaland

The South-West Governors’ Forum, has asked the Fulani herdsmen in the South, to ignore the call for them to return to the North.
The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Chairman, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, in a Press Conference, in Abuja, on Tuesday, had said that the call for Fulani  herdsmen to return to the North, was borne out of the alleged realisation that their lives have allegedly been put at risk, due to the recent actions and utterances of some Southern Governors.
However, the South-West Governors, on Saturday, described the call as “unpatriotic”.

In a statement by the Chairman of the Forum, and Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, the Governors asked the herdsmen to remain in the region.

The statement said that the six South-West Governors are already making efforts to provide adequate security for everyone in the region.

The statement reads: “We call on all persons of Fulani extraction, and indeed all Nigerians from other parts of the country, resident in the South-West, to discountenance the unpatriotic outburst of the NEF and other self-serving group of opportunists. We therefore, plead that herdsmen remain in the region. Their lives are secured.”
