Herdsmen Attacks Politically Sponsored Says APC Chieftain

Bamidele Fashube, Abuja Nigeria, GVE – THE National Deputy Chairman (South) of All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Segun Oni, has alleged that the incessant attacks on communities across the country by suspected herdsmen is politically sponsored.

Oni made the allegation while speaking to Newsmen at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja, Nigeria.

According to him, the intent of the politicians was to destabilise the Federal Government.

His words: “This, personally worries me because these gunmen who have suddenly become so notorious, invading villages and so on, are people that have always been around.

“My guess is that many of these are sponsored by people who have so much money and want to create instability.

“I believe that many of these have political motives and people who just want to trouble the government of the day. People who don’t want peace because they believe peace will also not be what they will want to see. It is very, very difficult.

“You will just hear one version here today, another striking us there tomorrow and so on. It is also a way of saying that what we are battling with is not ordinary,” he said.

He further stated that: “One thing we can say for sure is that Boko Haram has been mutilated. I believe the average Nigerian can see that, can feel that and understand that; whatever is left of it, let us encourage the security agencies to move ahead and move fast and take further control.

”I don’t think the security situation is as terrible as it used to; no, it is not. Therefore, as far as security is concerned, I would say that we have earned the pass mark, but we can do better.”
