See Why Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria told FG to treat Fulani herdsmen as Terrorists

The number of people killed by the Fulani herdsmen keeps on increasing every minutes of the day. 

And from a rough survey conducted sometime back, it shows that Christians are the main casualties of the violence across the nation if we should go by the recent killings in Benue State and Kaduna State. 

Hence, to contain and avoid this killings, PFN National President, Rev. Felix Omobude has called on the Federal Government to wake up to its responsibility and treat the herdsmen as terrorist and fight them in the same zeal it fought Boko Haram and bring them to justice immediately.

PFN National President, Rev. Felix Omobude, in a statement in Benin City, expressed worry over how the Fulani herdsmen continued to kill innocent Nigerians with ease and precision and escape justice.

’The PFN is deeply concerned at the lackluster approach of our security agencies in bringing these mayhem to an end,’’ Omobude noted.

“PFN believes it’s time our security forces perform their primary duty of protecting the lives and property of Nigerians. ‘Government at various levels should stop paying lip service to tackling the atrocities committed by these herdsmen, suspected to be of Fulani extraction, nationwide. This decimation of Communities with destruction of lives and properties must stop.

‘’It must be stated now and clear that it is in our collective interest to maintain peace as no group has a monopoly of violence. ‘The PFN calls on the federal government to act and act fast in stopping the perpetuators of these crimes across the country and bring them to book. PFN however calls on all well-meaning Nigerians to continue to exercise restraint even in the face of provocative and unwholesome activities of armed herdsmen and keep praying for peace and unity of Nigeria,’’ Dr. Omobude said.
