Herdsmen killings: Ignore Northern Elders – Afenifere reacts to NEF statement





Afenifere Chieftain, Ayo Adebanjo has condemned the statement credited to the Northern Elders’ Forum that herdsmen killings is a plot against the North.

The spokesman of Northern Elders’ Forum, Ango Abdullahi had earlier described the herdsmen killings as a political driven agenda to split the North.

The elder statesman said Abdullahi should be ignored as his statement concerning herdsmen attacks in Benue, Taraba made no sense.

Adebanjo speaking to Sun expressed disappointment at such claims coming from a professor and former vice chancellor.

He said “So, it was the plot by the south to make cattle to invade classrooms in the south; so, it was the plot of the south that made the herdsmen to raze houses in the south; so, it was the plot of the south that made the herdsmen to kidnap Chief Olu Falae and also destroy his farm; so it was the plot by the south for the herdsmen to kill people in Adamawa, Kwara, Enugu, Port Harcourt, etc?

“I believe Ango Abdullahi should talk more as a professor, and even as a former vice chancellor for that matter. I have known him for long, and for him to make that statement, I believe he should be ignored. What he has said doesn’t make any sense in view of the activities of the herdsmen.

“That doesn’t solve of the problem of the country. He is one of those that we thought would be more reasonable to make reasonable suggestions to the problems of the country. I think the best thing to do is just to ignore him.”
