September 15, 2017- Fayose Blasts Army For ‘Ethnic Cleansing’ Attack On Igbo People & IPOB Members As Fulani Herdsmen Are Left Unchecked

Fayose Says Nnamdi Kanu’s House Arrest Is A Reckless Abuse Of Human Right 

The Governor of Ekiti state, 2019 Presidential aspirant Ayodele Fayose has come hard on the Nigerian army for allegedly attacking IPOB members.

Fayose accused Buhari of bringing the full weight of military on IPOB members while Fulani herdsmen killing innocent people across the nation are left unchecked.

The controversial governor who is working hard to occupy Aso Rock in 2019 described recent army crack down on IPOB as ethnic cleansing and house arrest of IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu as reckless abuse of human rights..

His words:

“I have said it earlier that this is beyond (Nnamdi) Kanu. That region entirely is embattled and challenged. But you know politics, time will tell.

“The wind blowing away your wife will blow you away one day. The wind blowing away your enemy today may blow you say one day. It is unfortunate that the Ibo people are suffering this kind of fate.

“The herdsmen wreaking havoc all over, and killing, what has the military done to deal with them. Has anyone of the herdsmen been prosecuted let alone giving them this kind of treatment.

“You went to court to revoke Kanu’s bail but you can’t even wait for the court to take decision before occupying his house. Nigeria is in trouble except the Lord helps us. When the wicked are in authority, the people suffers, when the righteous are there, the people rejoice.

“We are in a major dilemma. Buhari coming back to power as I have said before is like returning to the dark days of the 1984 in no time, because they want to gag Nigerians they came up with law against hate speech.”

“I have said it before now that it is only God that can help the Igbo people. What I see going on the is ethnic cleansing, when you see the video clips of that occupation the behaviour of the soldiers it leaves much to be desired.”

The smart politician who has volunteered to fight for Ndigbo is guaranteed to get their votes in 2019.

  1. Fayose may be aa stupid man but he is right in comparing the actions of fulani herdsmen too IPOB with respect to govt reaction to both. why wsnt the army unleashed at hersmen who wreak havoc all over d country?

  2. I AM just wondering if all this staunch loyalty to IPOB coming from Fayose is by any chance hypocritical, borne out of his disaffection with Buhari and APC. For after all the unsavoury and derogatory speeches that Kanu had made against the WHOLE of Yorubas, not even sparing an ordained man of God called Kumuyi, Fayose throws all these behind him to pitch his tent with Kanu. That is very amazing! I’ve thought this through, and come up with three conclusions, one of which must hold true:

    1) Fayose is not a Yoruba man
    2) Or he’s a very very very forgiving Yoruba man.
    3) Or he’s simply waiting for when their common enemy, Buhari is finally settled, and then he would strike out against Kanu without a warning. You can’t say those derogatory things about a people and expect one of theirs to be your faithful friend.

    • Fayose maybe be wrong as regards to his administrative performance in connection with the people of Ekiti State. Nevertheless, he is someone who has a more broadened political view and recognised the fact that Nnamdi Kanu has not violated the constitution for peacefully calling for equal right and justice or referendum as the last resort. This learned men-Fayose and Femi Fani Kayode have no objection over the call by IPOB to secede from Nigeria. If Fayose were to be the current president today, I believe he would have handled IPOB matter in a more diplomatic fashion rather the aggressive posture of Buhari-led government. And i don’t think Fayose is upset or harboring any resentment as regard to the derogatory speeches made by Nnamdi Kanu against the Yorubas, because he believed Nnamdi Kanu’s utterances were mere words said out of extreme anger and dissatisfaction over the unfairness of economy and political marginalisation experienced by the Igbo people under the current regime. This is why he strongly support IPOB course because he believe the regime is taking a totally wrong approach in handling the current issue. To me, I consider Fayose as a free man of all free people who has no problem with Igbo people. His association with Igbo people is genuine and without hypocrisy. The only aspect of him that I seriously frowned at, is his failure to pay his workers salaries. That’s all!

      • Ok, u have only proved that Fayose has decived you already. He has only 3 friends in country and they are Peter, Ayodele and Fayose. Any other person is just a means to an end.

      • I HOPE you’re right, even though I strongly believe that Fayose would have been singing something different if he was in terms with PMB. The real Fayose is who we may never know as long as the government at the center is not his party.
