Quit Notice to Herdsmen: Fani-Kayode blasts Buhari, lauds Ondo govt


Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode has berated Buhari’s government for speaking against the ultimatum given to unregistered herdsmen to quit Ondo Forest.

Recall that the Presidency, through the spokesman of President Mohammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu said that herdsmen who live in Ondo forest reserves have rights to reside there.

The Presidency had urged both the herdsmen and the state government to exercise restraints and continue to engage in dialogue.

Reacting to the development, Fani Kayode in a tweet on Wednesday said that the statement made  by Garba Shehu  was ‘insulting, provocative, asinine and absurd.’

He said, “Quit notices cannot be given to law-abiding citizens in any part of Nigeria but must be given to those that kill, steal and seek to destroy the lives of others. Murderous terrorists and bloodthirsty and evil men that hide in the forest to ambush, kidnap, kill and destroy innocent and hardworking men and women have no constitutional rights.

“It is the duty of Governnent to not only flush them out from whichever hole they are hiding but also to despatch them to hell where they belong.

“Akeredolu has done and said the right thing and I urge every single SW Governor to do the same. Fulanis, Hausas, Igbos, Ijaws and all Nigerians are welcome in the SW but terrorists, bandits, killers and unhinged, bloodlusting and bloodthirsty psychopaths and sociopaths are not.”

“Buhari do your job and stop the killings. Stop turning a blind eye simply because they come from your tribe. Stop brushing this under the carpet and treating them with kid gloves simply because they are your footsoldiers. Stop protecting them and stop encouraging them,” he added
