Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has called on the government of President Muhammadu Buahri to to stop ruling the country with double standard.
Mr. Fayose made the call on Thursday during his visit to Benue State to commiserate with the people of the state over the loss of 73 people to herdsmen attacks.
The governor described the killings in Benue State as ethnic cleansing, telling Benue people not to allow others to cow them.
He said, “This nation belongs to our forefathers and they bequeathed it to us and we should not allow anyone to chase others away, this country belongs to all of us.
“Those who committed less offence like hate speech are made to face the wrath of the law while those unleashing mayhem on others are treated as sacred cows.”
“I went to the graveside today and I was moved to tears. How can people be slaughtered like cows? There is no terrorism more than what has happened in Benue.
“I charge the Federal Government to stop ruling Nigeria with double standard. Killing innocent souls, sacking their communities is nothing but terrorism.”
Fayose asked Benue State governor Samuel Ortom to ensure that the anti-grazing law succeeds in the state.
