President of the Benin Solidarity Movement (BSM) worldwide, a socio-political group dedicated to the ideals of Benin Kingdom, Elder Curtis Eghosa Ugbo, has condemned the open support that President Muhammadu Buhari and his aides are giving to Fulani herdsmen turn criminals operating all over the country.
Elder Ugbo said in his statement: “Benin Solidarity Movement (BSM) worldwide is concerned with the attitude of President Muhammadu Buhari’s aides who always sees nothing wrong in exacerbating already tense situations.
“The latest of such misfiring is coming from Lauretta Onochie, the Senior Special Assistant on Social Media to President Muhammadu Buhari, who is well known for parroting anything no matter how senseless that she feels would place her principal in an advantageous position.
“Her mannerism is a direct reflection of what is the hallmark of all aides of Buhari who of recent has let the world know that he is more of a president of Fulani people contrary to what we have always thought is the case.
“It seems it is a taboo for his aides to disagree with the ‘Fulani President’ and step out of his team with their personality intact. Cases abound where such unrepentant ‘yes men’ end up being disgraced when they fall out of line with Buhari.
“Over the years there have been cases of the heinous crimes committed by the untouchable Fulani herdsmen been reported with no single aide of Buhari condemning their action.
“So, it became a matter of world acclaim that the moment a people, who have suffered untold molestation and deprivation from the Fulani herdsmen, decided to rise and defend themselves their President, Muhammadu Buhari and his hirelings under 24 hours found their voice and make a case in defence of the criminal elements.
“BSM wish to remind Lauretta and her co-travellers in the Buhari government that history abound of so called untouchables of yester years spending their last days in the gulag.
“From all indications it is a foregone conclusion that similar fate awaits Buhari and others in Nigeria who turn a blind eye to injustice. Justice will be served to them in good dosage when the Lord’s appointed time comes.
“A word is enough for the wise!”
