A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Dr Garus Gololo, has accused the former deputy governor of Abia State, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe of attempting to break Nigeria apart.
Golo who was once a coordinator of the Benue State chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), called for the arrest and prosecution of Abaribe for demanding the declaration of Fulani herders as a terrorist group in Nigeria.
Naija News understands that Abaribe earlier called out President Muhammadu Buhari led government for failing to proscribe Fulani herders in the nation. Addressing reporter in Abuja on Monday, Gololo condemned the senator, labelling him as a hypocrite.
According to him, Abaribe had no moral justification to suggest that “the largest tribe” in Nigeria be proscribed.
He said: “It is very unfortunate that the same Senator who stood as surety to abate the release of a man who was being prosecuted for crimes against the state, and the man later jumped bail to a foreign land; could still have the mouth to speak against Fulani people.
“What crime could be more terrible than that of a man who sought to disintegrate the Federal Republic of Nigeria, with the intention of having his own sovereign state and be printing his own currency at will? Treason is a serious crime all over the world. Yet, Abaribe stood for him.
“Senator Ali Ndume who stood as surety for someone who was just accused of embezzlement was arrested and imprisoned, until the accused showed up. I wonder why they still allow Abaribe to be moving freely and still be attending plenary, to the extent of having the guts to speak in a manner to disintegrate this country.
“The Inspector-General of Police should work with the Federal High Court and have him arrested, so he could produce the culprit he assisted to run away. The Senate President should not even allow him to attend plenary, because his conduct is not that of a leader.”
Meanwhile, the Ondo State chapter of the Western Security Network Agency better known as Amotekun has revealed those responsible for the killing of a farmer in Ondo, Naija News reports.
