The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) has accused Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi of “playing politics” with lives of his people.
The opposition party was reacting to the killing of two farmers Toyin Akeju, and Yusuf Onuche by alleged herdsmen in Isaba Ekiti.
“The governor must stop shedding crocodile tears and acting political correctness on the killings in the state.
“It is important that leaders of Fulani herders in the state are summoned by the government and handed a marching order to produce killers of those persons in Isaba Ekiti because they cannot claim not to know the killers among their people.
“The governor has to engage leaders of the Fulanis as done by his predecessor, Ayo Fayose, when he was governor so that they can join hands with government to flush out criminal elements among them. The killing by herders must stop now and Governor Fayemi must act with sincerity of purpose,” said Raphael Adeyanju, the Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Ekiti state chapter.
On his part, Governor Fayemi has vowed to prosecute those behind the killings.
“We will get to the bottom of this sad occurrence and bring all the criminals involved to book”, he while commiserating with families of the deceased farmers.
The governor said the two farmers “were found dead on the farms with wounds from gun shots suspected to have been fired by Bororo herdsmen. This, understandably, generated a lot of anger in the community.”
