Fayose Equips Ekiti Citizens To Go And Kill Fulani Herdsmen In The State

Video: Gov. Fayose Equips Hunters To Shoot Nomadic Fulani Herdsmen At Sight


The Paradigm has obtained video of Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, equipping local hunters to go and kill Fulani Herdsmen around the state.

Mr. Fayose gave the order while visiting Oke Ako, a community in Ekiti State where Fulani Herdsmen had killed two people last week.

During the visit, Fayose said: “From now on, my government has banned grazing in Ekiti State. If you want to graze, it should be in your local ranches.

“Any cow seen around should be seized and it would henceforth become government property and their owners shall be prosecuted.

“On no account should anybody come to sack our communities again, rise up against them.

“Before any herdsmen kill you, kill them, before they rape your wives, kill them, and before they rape your children kill them.

“I am giving you this order before they kill you kill them. You have to defend yourselves. Before they get you, you must get them down and take them out.

“You should pursue them, go and search for them inside the forest. Anyone who comes to take your life, you must take them out.

“We will not leave our lands for Fulani herdsmen and in a system where the leadership of the country looks the other way while our people are being killed, we will have no option than to defend ourselves.”

The chairman of the community’s hunters association, Joseph Osasona, called on Fayose to support them with logistics, arms and finance.

“We are appealing to the government to support us because without arms, we can do nothing.

“We want the governor to allow us use guns because when the herdsmen came, they carried AK-47 rifles.

“We can’t face them with dane guns. We are a registered association and we need the support of our government to protect our people,” Osasona said.
