Former Minister for Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has defended Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed over the controversial statement made by the latter on Fulani herdsmen carrying AK-47 rifle.

The Ex-Minister defended the Governor, saying that he is not a warmonger.

Fani-Kayode added that  he was glad that he said he never supported herdsmen carrying AK-47.

It will be recalled that Mohammed reportedly  said Fulani herdsmen only carry AK-47 for self-defence and to protect themselves.

Mohammed later denied the statement, saying his use of AK-47 was figure of speech to express the plight the herdsmen found themselves.

He noted that contrary to what some people had said, Mohammed is not a warmonger.

“Glad that Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state has clarified his position, said he never advocated for herdsmen to carry AK 47’s & said he used those words as a figure of speech.

“I assure you that contrary to what some have said the Bala I have known for 15 years is no warmonger,” he said.
