President Buhari Meets With Service Chiefs Days After Herdsmen Beheaded Elderly Farmer

0

President Muhammadu Buhari is presently in a meeting with the nation’s Service Chiefs at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The meeting is also being attended by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, the Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), as well as the Comptroller General of Immigration.

Although the media is yet to be fed with the agenda of the meeting, it is understood that it might not be unrelated to the current security challenges facing the country.

Buhari’s government has recently come under intense criticism following killings by suspected Fulani herdsmen in some parts of the country.

During the weekend, some suspected Fulani herdsmen beheaded an elderly farmer identified as Mustapha, alias Bebe Jeje, in his farm at Iseyin, Oyo State.

Speaking with Vanguard about the incident, the President-General of Agbekoyas Worldwide, Kamoru Okiki Aremu, said the herdsmen also injured the farmer’s son who was with him on the farm, destroying further the crops in his farm.

His words: ”We are grieving. These herdsmen went to Baba Jeje’s farm, beheaded him and also injured his son who was with him.

”We have had enough of these herdsmen; we are Agbekoyas and we don’t look for trouble. But for this that had just happened, we have sent all our members to comb the bushes for any herdsmen and deal decisively with them.

”If the federal government and Governor Ajimobi fail to bring these people to justice, we are going to handle them in our own way. We are not afraid of anybody.”
