Shehu Sani, the Senator representing Kaduna Central has alleged
that some governors were responsible for the mass murder
executed by Fulani herdsmen in some parts of Nigeria.
The lawmaker in a series of tweets on his Twitter page, said
Governors operating the policy of conditional cash transfer were
the cause of herdsmen killings in the country.
Sani urged the federal government to treat such governors as a
national security risk.
His tweets read, “The roots of Herdsmen mass murder and
kidnappings in other parts of Nigeria is in the policy of ‘Paying
Fulani Herdsmen’ by some Governors.They appeased a monster
with public funds and now the monster is going door to
door;Sahel,Savanna and mangrove forests.
“Any Governor of a state operating the policy of Conditional Cash
transfer to Killer Herdsmen is their patron. And he must be seen
and treated as a national security risk.”
