Herdsmen attacks: Security agencies have failed, president should act now, says Kaka
The continuous killings of farmers by Fulani herdsmen is a clear indication that, either the country’s security agencies saddled with the responsibility of securing lives and property are not doing their work or they are not getting the needed backing of those at the helm of affairs, a senator said at the weekend.
Senator Gbenga Kaka who spoke to journalists wondered why the country’s security agencies seem to be overwhelmed by the Fulani herdsmen who are not professionally trained, “We have about seven security agencies, yet they keep failing us”.
Kaka who represented Ogun East Senatorial District reasoned that if those in charge of securing the country are failing in their duties, there is no justifiable reason for the President not to sack them.
In his opinion, the solution to the Fulani herdsmen attacks on farmers does not lie in the establishment of grazing colonies because “where the right of the herdsmen to feed their animals ends, is where that of the farmer begins,” he said.
