Great Tension, As Buhari Technically ‘Defends’ Fulani Herdsmen, Warns All Nigerians

Sequel to the controversies that have been generated due to the rate of killings in Nigeria, allegedly linked to Fulani herdsmen, President Muhammadu Buhari has cautioned Leaders in the country to be mindful of their utterances and its potential consequences.

The President, made this known following the unfortunate killing of the daughter of the Afenifere Leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.

It could be recalled, that late Funke Olakunrin, (Fasoranti’s daughter) was killed on Friday, July 12, on the Kajola-Ore road, in Ondo State, by some suspected Fulani herdsmen.

Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari, in a statement on Monday, July 15, warned against politicising the tragic death of Mrs. Olakunrin.

He said: “It is incumbent on all Leaders across the country, to consider their language and its potential consequences.

“Insecurity is an issue that Nigeria must face together as one nation – united.

“Times of tragedy like these are not the time for politics. It reveals only disrespect for the departed and her family.

“And we hope that those who stand in positions of influence recognise and understand this.”

The statement added that, President Muhammadu Buhari had already issued a statement expressing his heartfelt condolences to the family of Mrs. Olakunrin, and followed up with a telephone call.

“The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has in addition, paid a visit to the grieving family in Akure, Ondo State.

“Her death is a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family”, Garba Shehu concluded.
