Herdsmen are not responsible for killings of Nigerians – Oshiomhole

Adams Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has absolved herdsmen of the killings in some states of the federation.

He stated that those “turning the truth upside down to portray” the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in a bad light were linking herdsmen to all the killings in some states in the country.

Oshiomhole said this at a rally in Abakaliki on Saturday.

The former Edo State governor assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies were working hard to end insecurity in the country.

He urged Nigerians not, “to allow themselves to be deceived by the antics of selfish politicians in the country who are trying to give the security challenges in the country an ethnic colouration in order to score cheap political points.”

Oshiomhole noted that the security challenges were a ploy “to portray the government of President Muhammadu Buhari in bad light by portraying all the killings in some states in the country as the handiwork of herdsmen.

“Let me urge you to be more careful because this season, people are spreading untruth. People are being hired to turn the gospel upside down. They want us to believe that every problem should be explained in ethnic and religious terms.
