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..
“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.
