Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, yesterday, lamented the incessant killings by herdsmen.
The Governor said Nigeria had been bedeviled by the menace of terrorism and herdsmen killings, describing the situation as unfortunate.
Okorocha made this comment through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, while speaking at this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration held at Heroes Square, Owerri.
Okorocha said he was not happy that, “Nigeria today is passing through a very difficult time. We are having so many challenges, ranging from terrorism to activities of the evil herdsmen and those who have chosen to kill for no just reason.
“It comes to a point when a nation may look hopeless and helpless. This is a very difficult moment in the history of the nation, but suffice it to say that we are consoled by the fact that we have gallant soldiers who are ready to lay their lives to save our nation.”
Okorocha had recently lambasted his economic team led by Prof. Maurice Iwu for allegedly leaking the outcome of a private meeting held at Government House, Owerri, to the public.
