Herdsmen Attack: Tinubu suffering from selective amnesia – Afenifere
…..says the APC leader kept quiet during attacks
The Pan-Yoruba Social-cultural group has placed the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu over his silence when the Fulani herdsmen were raving the South-west.
The Spokesman of the group, Yinka Odumakin carpeted the former Lagos State governor.
Tinubu though his media aide, Tunde Rahman had said the South-West was not affected by herdsmen attack.
Reacting, Odumakin said the Afenifere chieftain was suffering from selective amnesia, adding that the APC leader was living in denial.
He scolded Tinubu for keeping quiet when an elder statesman, Olu Falae was abducted by the herdsmen, and many farmers in some parts of the South-West were attacked.
Odumakin noted that the marauders had killed people in Yewa, Oke Ogun, Ekiti, Akure and other parts of the religion.
He said, “Tinubu has maintained a sinful silence as herdsmen launched vicious attacks on the South-West and other sections of the country with thousands of lives lost in the last three years.
“He can play the ostrich all he wants but we know he was mute when herdsmen kidnapped Chief Olu Falae. He could not find his voice when herders killed people in Yewa, Oke Ogun, Akure, Ekiti and the Middle Belt.
“Neither did I hear a word from Tinubu when herdsmen kidnapped and killed a Permanent Secretary in Osun (where Tinubu and I are from).”
The Spokesman said Tinubu claim to be a federalist whenever it suited him.
He said cattle herders are businessmen and should apply to the state government for land allocation if they were interested in ranching.
He accused the APC chieftain of launching a personal attack against him.
He added: “I do not intend to take issues with him in all the personal attacks and insinuations of disorder of the mind. Why should I when I know that it is chronic abusers of substance that are more prone to suffer from such? Thank God I am not one of them,” Odumakin quipped.
