Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, on Tuesday reacted to Paul Unongo’s claim that former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar was one of those sponsoring killer Fulani herdsmen.
Following Unongo’s allegation, the former Vice President had come out to dismiss the claim.
The former Vice President also threatened a legal suit against Unongo, should he fail to retract the claim and pay him the sum of N200m as compensation.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chieftain in his reaction, described Unongo’s allegation against the Waziri of Adamawa as “shameful.”
In a tweet via his Twitter handle, the former Minister wrote: “It is shameful that whilst his people are being slaughtered like flies by the Fulani, Chief Paul Unongo, a man that I have always liked and respected, will point fingers at VP Atiku, one of the few Fulani leaders who has openly condemned the genocidal activities of the herdsmen.”
The former Minister also faulted the non-arrest of Garus Gololo, leader of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association in Benue.
He wrote: “Garus Gololo, leader of the Fulani terrorists in Benue, says his people carried out the massacres yet he walks free.
“Again the terrorists had the guts to say that the genocide and ethnic cleansing in Benue will not end until Benue changes its grazing laws.”
