Placards carried by the protesters read, “We want justice for our father”. “Fulani herdsmen that are killing us must be fished out”.

“We need protection and justice.”

Speaking to newsmen, Kingsley Emmanuel, one of the workers of late Pastor Eromosele who narrowly escaped being killed, said two herdsmen stopped them at the farm with guns.

Kingsley said the herdsmen showed them a man in a photograph as being the person that sent them to kill Pastor Eromosele.

He said the herdsmen collected the sum of N31, 500 and asked the late Pastor to call his wife for ransom payment.

According to him, “After they beat us with sticks and guns, my oga called his wife around 5pm and told her what happened. They said she should bring N4m but later reduced it to N2m.

“They took us to another place and tied my oga down. My oga was begging them but they refused. My brother Akpan was cut on the hand but he managed to escape.

“The next day, they said they wanted to kill us since my Oga wife did not bring money. After my Oga begged them, he told his wife to keep the money and used it for his burial.

“They used cutlass to cut my hand and shoulder but my Oga told me to run so I ran but was very weak so I slept in the bush.”

    Kingsley said, they show us the photograph of a man who sent them to kill that pastor. Kingsley, does that man look like a Fulani? this is the point i’ve been trying to make all along. The killers may dress in Fulani attire but they are not real Fulani’s. Folks, we need to think straight before we make conclusion. The people who are terrorizing Benue people are the real indigene of that State who are being used by some politicians.

    We are our own problem in Nigeria and these criminals are walking freely because they have people who can assure them of their release if they were eventually caught. Also, most of the Politicians have been using these terrorists to achieve their political agenda and guarantee their release is kind of payback. I believe in the end these criminals will be arrested but are we going to see any justice done? No! because they have people in the corridor of power whom they are working for.

    A little while ago, I was watching on you tube where one of notorious gang kingpin named Ghana revealed what he knew about maiming, killing and terrorizing Benue people. He said when the SSS Officers were trying to arrest me, I have to make a direct call to his excellency i.e the Governor of Benue State that i knew nothing about the crime. I laughed, the first question that came into my mind was, how can a notorious criminal have a direct phone line to the Executive State Governor if he had not been having contact with him? I will give the fellow forumites the puzzle to solve. As I always used to say, the secret of security of this Country lies on our leadership.
