FORMER Deputy National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has said expressed concern over President Buhari’s silence on the killing of over 40 people by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Igangan, Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State.

George said that it was disappointing that Buhari’s aide, who always react swiftly to incidents such as this, have remained silent.

According to the PDP chieftain, it was dangerous that Buhari, being a Fulani man, has refused to speak.

George spoke in Lagos yesterday, in his State of the Nation’s address, pointing out that Buhari being a Fulani man was enough for him to come out and condemn the dastardly act.

“President Muhammadu Buhari’s silence on the killings of people of Igangan community is dangerous and the fact that he is a Fulani man makes the matter worse.

“I know his media aids to be very fast in reacting to issues but their silence on this particular incident is very suspicious,” he said.

This was just as he pointed out that the killings by the Fulani herdsmen “in the wee hours of last Sunday has brought the seething malady right to our doorsteps. No one is safe anymore.

“The senseless killings, the cruel inhuman massacre of the Igangan natives in the Yoruba heartland by suspected herdsmen in the wee hours of last Sunday has brought the seething malady right to our doorsteps. No one is safe anymore.

“I wonder, what hate, what evil, what madness will propel anyone of sane mind to plunge into the night with weapons of war, seeking out fellow citizens for pillage and murder? It puzzles rationality. It benumbs the senses.

“The Igangan massacre is now a watershed in these ceaseless psychopathic killings that now pester our country without let. It will continue to haunt us all.”
Similarly, the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, says it is not surprising that presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, is silent over last weekend’s attack.
“It is very clear that the Federal Government is not even ready to issue any statement regarding the attack,” he said yesterday.
“The Federal Government would be the first to condemn such an attack if it had happened in the North but Garba Shehu as he is, we know where he is coming from, so, we are not expecting any miracle from him. As Aare said in a previous statement, those that perpetrated the act are beating the drum of war in the country.”
