OrderPaperToday – A man identified as Mr. Perry Brain on has besieged the National Assembly to protest an end to the wanton killings alleged to have been perpetrated by Funlani herdsmen in Benue State and other parts of the country.
Mr. Brain, who resisted entreaties from security agents attached to the National Assembly to end his action, described the Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association as a terrorist organization.
He further stated that a situation where the head of Myetti Allah would come out openly to claim responsibility for the killings in Benue and yet be unapprehended by security agencies was unacceptable.
He therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately label the fulani herdsmen as a terrorist organization same way he pronounced Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Muslim Shiites group in Kaduna.
He said: “They are killing people in Benue and the federal government is not saying anything yet they jumped to proscribe Shiites and IPOB as a terrorist organization and the fulani herdsmen who have been killing at least a thousand Nigerians every year, yet the government has failed to proscribed them as a terrorist group;
“You are in this country and you heard the Leader of Miyetti Allah claim responsibility for the attacks in Benue State yet the security agencies didn’t arrest him yet Shiites who embarked on a peaceful protest are been arrested and locked up for years.
“Our people are been matcheted and killed everyday and nobody is saying anything yet they are going about arresting and detaining innocent people, that is why this protest says justice has been turn in its head in Nigeria that is why I’m here protesting.”
