‘Herdsmen sabotaging Nigeria’s food security policy’

From Sunny Nwankwo, Aba
Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the Southeast Bishop Goddy Okafor has lamented that herdsmen were threatening the food security policies/programmes of the Federal Government.
Okafor, in an interview, said it was high time the service chiefs and heads of security agencies thinker a way to pull the country out of the current insecurity and endless bloodletting.
He said: “The killings in Southern Kaduna are disturbing. We’re one people and one nation. But for these persistent killings to continue without the Federal Government doing something drastic to stop is very disturbing.
“Nigerians are beginning to ask questions; we want to know if the Federal Government does not know what to do to bring peace to Southern Kaduna. Does it mean it lacks the will to stop the killings?
“Nigeria is a great country, but if we keep allowing things like this to persist, it will throw everyone into confusion and one will be wondering do I really belong here. Or could it be that what Femi Adesina said two years ago is beginning to play out, that if Nigerians want to stay alive, they should give their lands?
“Could it be that someone who is interested in possessing Southern Kaduna wants to wipe them out in order to take over their land?
“Are the bandits human beings or spirits? If they’re human beings, our law enforcement agents should go stop them. These people who are being killed are Nigerians. The Federal Government owes it to them to protect them; it is the government’s responsibility to protect life and property. We call on the Federal Government to do its best and stop this. Let it prove to Nigerians that it is not in connivance with the killers.”
