A former Aviation Minister in the country, Femi Fani-Kayode, has taken to his social media page to react to a report which surfaced online from the stables of the Department of State Service, DSS, which purported that the killings in Benue state and other states allegedly perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen is due to the impact of the Islamic State In West Africa.
According to the report, the ISWA recruited foreigners to kill residents of Benue and other affected states.
In reaction, Femi Fani-Kayode in his usual outspoken manner insisted that the federal government was playing hide and seek with Nigerians by withholding the real truth.
He stated that the Fulani herdsmen and Miyetti Allah are responsible for the genocide and ethnic cleansing in Nigeria, while labelling the report by the DSS false.
He took to his Twitter page to write:
“The Jama’atu Nasir Islam (JNI) says the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is using Fulani herdsmen to destabilise Nigeria in order to achieve “their agenda”.
“I have never heard such garrolous, mendacious and incredulous bunkum before in my entire life. Grow up!
“Through leaked intelligence reports the DSS claims that a group they describe as ISWA (Islamic State In West Africa) is responsible for the genocide and ethnic cleansing going on in our country today. This is false. Those behind it are the Fulani terrorists and Miyetti Allah.
“The people of Nigeria are being subjected to nothing less than Islamist terrorism in its full manifestation whilst living in penury, poverty, shame and bondage. Satanic cattle, herded by demonic and genocidal psychopaths and sociopaths, infest and plague our land whilst we…1/2
…remain shackled and enslaved by the cruel and unrelenting chains of our internal colonial masters and feudal lords. Our struggle for freedom and emancipation must continue until every single Nigerian, regardless of faith or tribe, is truly liberated and completely free.
“We have investigated the crises facing Christians in Nigeria today. Nigeria is the most dangerous place for Christians in the world and impunity for those responsible for the killing of Christians is widespread”-Chris Smith, Chairman, US House of Rep’s Sub-committee on Africa.”
