Buhari Omokri NHRC chairman Suleiman

Human rights activist and social commentator, Reno Omokri, has said that the solution to incessant killings by the Fulani herdsmen is for the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) to lose his job.

Omokri made this known on Wednesday night while announcing the tragic death of his personal assistant’s uncle who was allegedly kidnapped and killed by the Fulani herdsmen.

According to the former presidential aide in separate tweets on his verified Twitter handle, the deceased was kidnapped in Edo state after attending the burial of his brother who happened to be his PA’s father.

He revealed that the herdsmen demanded a ransom of ₦14 million adding that although they met the demands of the abductors, Prince Eloniyo Abuda was found lifeless afterwards.

He said: “My PA’s uncle, Prince Eloniyo Abuda, who attended his dad’s burial at Fugar, Edo, was kidnapped by herdsmen. They demanded ₦14 million. It was paid. Today, we discovered his corpse. He is survived by a wife and 2 kids. How long Nigeria? How long?”

Speaking further, Omokri opined that the cruel killing and kidnappings of Nigerians will only cease when Buhari no longer occupies the position of the president.

“The only way herdsmen will stop killing Nigerians at will is when General #Buhari loses his job. As long as @MBuhari is in charge at Aso Rock, people like Garba Shehu, @GarShehu, will continue to make excuses for herdsmen and demonise their victims,” he added.

The uncontrolled acts of the Fulani herdsmen have raised concerns across the country with those in the South-West as well as the Eastern part calling for the evacuation of the dreaded gun-wielding cattle rearers who have been accused of numerous kidnappings and killings.
