"No way for killer herdsmen in Ekiti" says Fayose as he meets with hunters, asks them to protect the state

The Governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose has said that he is not going to run to Abuja "for help that is not available" should herdsmen attack the state. He said he met with local hunters in the state and charged them to protect the state. In tweets released today, the Governor said:

"On the herdsmen's menace, I met with local hunters in Ekiti State today and charged them to protect the people since I won't run to anyone in Abuja for help that is not available. They must not take laws into their hands, but they should defend Ekiti & its people"
"On the issue of protection of the lives of Ekiti people, I'm not one that will want to be politically correct. Protection of lives must be done anyway which way. My message is clear and simple, no way for killer herdsmen in Ekiti!"

In recent times, suspected Fulani herdsmen has wrecked havoc in the Benue Valley with the people accusing the Federal Government of a conspiracy of silence. Close to 50 farmers has been murdered in cold blood this year in Benue state alone. The bodies are to be buried in a mass grave tomorrow in Makurdi.
