Gov. Fayose Declares War On Herdsmen; Says An Eye For An Eye



Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has said that people of the state are fully prepared to take vengeance on nomadic cattle Fulani herdsmen if they dare destroy farmers' crops any longer across the state. He said it is going to be an eye for an eye war. Fayose spoke yesterday in Ibadan, Oyo State capital while fielding questions from journalists after delivering a lecture on the World Press Day at the state's Secretariat of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ). Meanwhile, the governor described President Muhammadu Buhari as his president, who he holds in high esteem, though emphasised that he (Buhari) is too old to tame the Fulani herdsmen, who are holding the entire country to ransom. He

recommended 60 years for future presidents in Nigeria.
