Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned in totality the gruesome murder of pregnant women and unborn babies in some parts of the country.
Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, described the act as barbaric, stressing that it should be stopped.
He was reacting to the revelation by the Benue State APC chairman, Comrade Abba Yaro that a heavily pregnant woman was killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen with her unborn child removed and slaughtered.
He tweeted, “How can you kill a pregnant woman, remove the unborn child and slaughter it?”- Benue APC Chairman.
“That is their way. In 1966 during the pogroms in the north they did it to 100,000 Igbos. They targeted pregnant Igbo women, cut out their babies and smashed their heads open!”
He called on political officer holders and all Nigerians to rise against the ongoing pogrom in the country.
“Any leader, regardless of party affiliation, that refuses to publicly condemn the slaughter of the innocents by Fulani herdsmen, is not fit to hold public office.
“Such people are either cowards or they are part of a wider conspiracy to regularly and continuously shed human blood,” he said.
