Let Us ‘declare war’ on Fulani Terrorism – Onaiyekan

Nigeria’s leading Catholic prelate, Cardinal John Onaiyekan, has called for an end to the mindless killings of Christians and innocent Nigerians by suspected Fulani herdsmen. He made the call while celebrating Mass on January 19 for the release of Father Gabriel Oyaka, who was kidnapped a year ago.

“This is a tragedy that has overtaken our land and the name keeps on recurring that Fulani herdsmen are behind all these killings, kidnappings and destructions of lives and property in the country,” he said at a press conference following the Mass.

“We are faced with national emergency and the whole country should come together to find out ways to end this militancy,” he continued.

“If it is a matter of declaring war, let us declare war against the perpetrators of all these evils”, he said.
