Federal, State Officials To Visit Igangan, Other Parts Of Ibarapa Today.
The Federal Government, yesterday, received several knocks for the swift manner with which it responds to issues affecting Hausa/Fulani while a similar disposition is not shown towards worries and challenges faced by the majority of Nigerians.
The critics are particularly disturbed by the government’s taciturnity and alleged partisan disposition since allegations of criminal activities, including the destruction of farmlands were levelled against herdsmen operating from forest reserves in Oyo and Ondo states emerged.
However, following the alleged eviction of Fulani residing in Oyo State by aggrieved Yoruba youths, the apex northern socio-cultural group, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), yesterday, warned that counterattacks from northern youths could cause the country to slide into another civil war, hence the need for the ugly trend to be halted immediately.
But two socio-cultural groups in the South West, Afenifere and Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum, were quick to warn the Federal Government, and the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), that Nigerians will not continue to fold their arms and watch while suspected criminals and armed herdsmen rape, kill, and maim their kith and kin while the government pays lip service.
