The apex Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, and a former Aviation Minister Femi-Fani-Kayode have reacted to the setting ablaze of a farm belonging to a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Olu Falae by Fulani herdsmen.
Nigerian Eye had reported that Fulani herdsmen invaded Falae’s farm, setting it on fire.
Reacting, the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin described it as the continuation of the declaration of war by the Fulani.
According to Afenifere, “It is continuation of the declaration of war by armed Fulani herdsmen, who have been terrorising communities and are now burning farmlands.
“Now, they have gone to Falae’s farm. These people have made up their mind to go to war or have their way and the authority has refused to call them to order.
“The latest on Falae’s farm is clearly unacceptable, an aggression by the Fulani and they should be rest assured that the Yoruba nation will not take it likely.
“If they think that with all these they are doing, they will have one inch of land for cattle colony in any part of Yoruba land, they should forget it.”
Also reacting to the incident, Fani-Kayode wrote, “Fulani terrorists have set Chief Olu Falae’s entire farm in Ondo State on fire.
“Baba Falae is one of the most respected and revered leaders of Afenifere and the Yoruba nation.
“Only two years ago the same Fulani terrorists kidnapped him and almost killed him. I ask Buhari and Miyetti Allah, does he deserve this? Is this fair?
“How many more people have to die and how many more farms have to be destroyed before you will call these barbarians to order and bring them to book?”
