Pastor Tunde Bakare, General Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, has berated the Department of State Services, DSS, over its alleged silence on the killings perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen in Benue State.
Bakare said the secret police would pay for it’s “deliberate sinful silence” in Benue.
Addressing his members at the church auditorium in Sunday, the clergyman maintained that the secret police was guilty.
Bakare said, “We cannot keep quiet while hardened murderers and criminals fill our land with the crimes of blood. That would be DSS, deliberate sinful silence, and I think secret service is guilty of that.
“The brutal murder going on in Benue state and other parts of Nigeria is very attrocious and wicked. There will be consequences of this dastard murder. Every one involved in one way or the other, either overtly or covertly, shall pay for it.”
Recall that Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom had confirmed that at least 20 people were killed after suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked communities in Guma and Logo local government areas of the state few weeks ago.
Ortom disclosed this while briefing newsmen on Tuesday last week in Makurdi after the State security meeting.
On Wednesday last week, aggrieved youths in their hundreds embarked on a peaceful protest calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to “act now or resign.”
