A National House Of Representatives member representing Makurdi/Guma Federal Constituency of Benue State under the All Progressives Congress (APC) political party, Dickson Tarkighir, has blasted the president over continuous silence on the issue of Fulani herdsmen terrorizing communities by maiming residents and raiding buildings.
“I must say that the incessant attacks by herdsmen on communities across the country has brought a lot of anxiety. Government needs to act fast. I am surprised that the President has been silent over the killings in Agatu in Taraba, Kogi, Nasarawa, especially the north central valley.
“The President has said nothing. People are beginning to think that his presidency has emboldened herdsmen to attack communities across the country because he is a Fulani man who also owns a cattle ranch. The President is supposed to lead by example.”
