Fulanis Are Not Killers–Okorocha

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has said that it is morally wrong to stigmatize the Fulani tribe by associating them with killer herdsmen.

The governor spoke when he received in audience National Leaders of the Sacred Order of Cherubim and Seraphim led by its Supreme Head, the Prelate His Eminence Solomon Alao, at the Government House Owerri at the weekend.

“We cannot be calling Igbos kidnappers or 419ers or Niger Delta people terrorists or militants or Hausa people Boko Harams or Fulani people killer herdsmen because of the activities of few criminals from their areas. That is the issue. A criminal is a criminal irrespective of tribe or religion. We cannot allow certain sentiments to becloud our sense of reasoning,” he said.

He also debunked insinuations that the state has cattle colonies, saying that what the state has is a cattle market located at Lokpanta in Okigwe.
