The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has cleared the herdsmen of the killings in some part of the country.
He expressed that those “flipping around reality to depict” the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in a terrible light were connecting herders to every one of the killings in a few states in the nation.
Oshiomhole said this at a rally in Abakaliki on Saturday.
The former Edo State senator guaranteed Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari and security offices were striving to end instability in the nation.
He asked Nigerians not, “to enable themselves to be misled by the shenanigans of narrow minded lawmakers in the nation who are endeavoring to give the security challenges in the nation an ethnic colouration keeping in mind the end goal to score modest political goals .”
Oshiomhole noticed that the security challenges were a ploy “to depict the legislature of President Muhammadu Buhari in terrible light by depicting every one of the killings in a few states in the nation as the handiwork of herdsmen.
“Give me a chance to encourage you to be more watchful in light of the fact that this season, individuals are spreading falsehood. Individuals are being enlisted to flip around the truth . They need us to trust that each issue ought to be clarified in ethnic and religious terms.
“We have an issue and we should stand up to those issues. Crooks must be managed separately as culprits and government at all levels must strive to ensure each Nigerian paying little respect to clan or religion.”
