Reno Omokri, former Presidential aide has berated President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to visit Benue State, following killing perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen.
The former Personal Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan said Buhari prefered to visit his “gay cows” in Daura, Katina State than visit Benue.
In a tweet via his social media handle, the former presidential aide stressed that Buhari’s action had shown that cows were more important to him than the lives of Benue people.
The United States Pastor wrote:
“The funny thing is that President Buhari has still not visited Benue where killer Fulani herdsmen killed Nigerians but he has visited Daura to tend to his 150 gay cows that don’t increase in number.
“It seems his cows are more important to Buhari than Benue people.”
Meanwhile, dozens of people on Monday embarked on a protest at Trafalgar Square, London, condemning the incessant killing of innocent Nigerians by suspected Fulani herdsmen in various parts of Nigeria.
The protest was convened by Mutual Union of Tivs in the United Kingdom (MUTUK) and was supported by members of the Nigerian community in the United Kingdom.
The protesters while chanting, ”Buhari, no more killing,” expressed disappointment on the silence of the Nigerian government.
They were seen holding placards with inscriptions like “Nigerian Government stop your silence on Fulani herdsmen’ ‘Blood ‘Nigeria life matters,’ ‘Stop killing Nigerians, Enough is Enough.”
Speaking during the protest, Dr. Kohol Shadrach Iornem, the Vice President of MUTUK, who was the convener of the protest, state that it was high time President Muhammadu Buhari offered a lasting solution to the killing of innocent people in Benue State.
“we are here today because of the current problems we are facing in Nigeria in the hands of the Fulani herdsmen who have continued to massacre our children, brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers.
“We are here because our people back at home have done everything within the law to bring an end to this ethnic cleansing. Our people back at home in Benue State have protested, they have held press conferences, they held meetings with community leaders to discuss the solution to these attacks, they have passed the anti-open grazing bill.
“Our leaders back at home have even visited President Muhammadu Buhari to plead with him to take decisive actions. It is sad that immediately after their visit, the Fulani herdsmen terror group killed at least 6 persons in the same Guma and Logo Local Governments where over 70 people were initially massacred and given state burial.
“We believe the international community does not know about the current genocide in Nigeria and that is there has been no reaction from them. We are here today to let the British Government know about this terror group, who has killed more Nigerians than the Boko Haram.
“It is the responsibility of any government to protect the lives and properties of its citizens and the government have failed us in this regard. In developed countries, the President ought to have tendered his resignation for failing the people who elected him. He is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and not president of a particular ethnic group.
“This is just the beginning. If President Muhamadu Buhari does not take immediate action to address the brutal killings of our defenceless people, Nigerians will come back here again. Enough is Enough!”
