Oba of Benin blows hot over killings in Nigeria

2

It’s very sad that the major news that trumps all the entertainment we could have for a year, all the Bella Naija wedding stories we’ll awww at, all the feminities of Dino Melaye’s case, is the Killings in Nigeria, mostly by the herdsmen.

The thought that people are dying everyday, being butchered by these uneducated men, leaving wailing families behind, is traumatizing.


The Oba of Benin, Omo N’oba N’edo, Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II has called on the federal government to stop the incessant killings by suspected herdsmen in the country.

He also urged the Presidency to take necessary steps that would strengthen security in every part of the country.

“We even learned that there might be some international connections to it, we don’t know anything about that all we want is for it to stop so that our people can know peace again.

“Nigerians cherish their comfort and a peaceful environment so much; so we are charging those of you at the helm of affairs in the country to do everything humanly possible to guarantee peace for Nigerians.

“The bloodletting is too much in the land and the nation is bleeding, we want a stop to this. The killing of innocent citizens has to stop in every part of this country. It is worrisome that the trending news in the country today is killing here and there, no day you will not hear the news that people have been butchered by herdsmen. Mr. Governor, something urgent needs to be done about it.

“I want to use this opportunity to implore Nigerians on the need for them to be vigilant and security conscious more than ever before in our society, it is important for us all to know our neighbours for our own safety.”
