Benue attacks: Presidency blames Nigerians for not speaking against killing of herdsmen | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Presidency has faulted the killing of about 200 Fulani herdsmen and cattle in various attacks across the country, saying that “every life is valuable.”

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie made the remark while sharing comments by the Secretary to the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Baba Othman Ngelzarma on her Twitter handle.

Onnochie wondered why Nigerians are silent on the death of herdsmen while crying about farmers and residents killed.

She wrote: “Every life is valuable.

“No one has a right to take any life.

“However, we are all silent on the murder of over 200 Nigerians.

“We are all caught up in the unfortunate loss of Nigerians on one side of the coin ONLY.

“The other side of the coin with over 200 lives lost, suffers in silence.”

Recall that Ngelzarma, had on Tuesday stressed that those who attacked Benue people were killers not herdsmen.

Ngelzarma said this while absolving his association of the killing allegedly perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen in Benue State.

Featuring on Channels Television’s programme, Sunrise Daily, the MACBAN leader maintained that herdsmen are peaceful people and not killers.

The MACBAN leader, who regretted the unfortunate killings, however called for an end to the “senseless killings.”

  4. This is FG DEFENDING THE KILLINGS! PHB SAYS, "I AM FOR EVERYBODY IAM FOR NOBODY". POSTERITY WILL JUDGE THIS STATEMENT. I wait to see the AGF going to court that these killings must not be investigaated!
    If FG can send the entire army to Kanu's house and they can only police to Benue. That says a lot about whose interest these killers protect.

  5. This woman has got to be the most incompetent of all the incompetent people at the Presidency. Anyway, she is making her money (hay) now by ass-licking (the sun shining). This old and skinny ass she is licking, there is god oh.

  7. So this is the position of APC led federal government.
    Where and when were the headsmen killed.
    I have said it before that the government has a hand in this killings that is why they have kept quiet since. Thank God this woman has revealed it, proving that these killings are confirmed perpetrated herdsmen. God is watching.

  8. This is an unfortunate statement coming from the presidency. So, Buhari and his government support this killings? This Lauretta needs her head examined. True, every life is valuable, but,there should be condemnation instead of tacit support. Does the Fulani herdsmen have licences to carry guns? Be it local or sophisticated weapons? Woman, be human in your utterances.
