Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, on Thursday declared that God will visit the blood of people killed by suspected herdsmen on their killers and sponsors.
Fayose spoke in Makurdi, the Benue State capital during his visit to commiserate with the State Governor, Samuel Ortom over killings by suspected herdsmen.
His comment was contained in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media Lere Olayinka.
He also declared support for the Benue State Anti-Grazing Law and urged the people of the State to stand by the law.
The statement sent to media houses, quoted Fayose as saying, “Since the law is for the Benue people by the Benue government and not for residents of other States, there should not be any problem about its enforcement.”
The governor enjoined the people of Benue State to be united in prayers, noting that “whosoever that is in government during the time of peace, posterity will remember him while those in powers when innocent people are being killed in the most barbaric manner will not be forgotten too.
He advised the people of Benue to “change vehicle since the present vehicle of change has broken own.”
Fayose visited the Genabe, Makurdi mass grave where the 73 persons killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Guma and Logo local government areas of Benue State, were buried. Prayers were offered for the repose of the souls of the victims by the Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Prof Kolapo Olusola.
