According to him, the recent killing of over 40 persons including women and children by herdsmen in MizaKupaland Local Government Area of Kogi State, is unacceptable.

The activist accused the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government of looking the other way when Fulani herdsmen gruesomely kills innocent Nigerians.
He berates the Federal Government “and the security agencies for not bringing the perpetrators of these dastardly act to Justice, insisting that Government and the security agents are intentionally looking awaybecause the herdsmen are from the President’s lineage.”
He however warned, “if nothing is done swiftly, Nigeria State may degenerate into anarchy, chaos and disorder, in which every region may be force to defend herself with arms against these Fulani herdsmen.”
In his submission, he enjoins Nigerians to work together to find a lasting solution to all acts of insecurity in the country, particularly acts of banditry, kidnapping, robbery and killing by the suspected Fulani herdsmen.”
In the same vein, he calls on the Federal Government to stop handling the incessant killings by Fulani herdsmen with light hand and to take decisive and drastic measure against these Fulani herdsmen which according to him, are gradually becoming terrorist group like the boko haram sect group.
