Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the shooting on sight of killer herdsmen from the Fulani tribe.
Fani-Kayode said Buhari should emulate ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo who ordered the shot at sight of Southwest mitia, Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC.
In a series of tweets, the former minister said Buhari should give the order for the sake of Nigerians.
He recounted how Obasanjo while in power gave such an order on OPC members despite wild condemnation.
According to Fani-Kayode: “Can President Buhari not learn from this? If OBJ can order that OPC members from his own Yoruba race be shot on sight, why can’t the PMB order that Fulani herdsmen and terrorists from his Fulani tribe be shot on sight as well?
“As a Yoruba man I deplored and condemned the killing of OPC members at the time and I did so publicly but Obasanjo did it anyway.
“Why can’t PMB muster the same resolve and do the same thing to the terrorists even though many in his tribe may not want him to do so. Can’t he do it for the sake of Nigeria and in order to avoid and avert a civil war?”
Killer herdsmen have being involved in the killings and raping of women across the country.
