The Nigerian presidency has subliminally claimed that former president, Goodluck Jonathan is responsible for the gruesome killings being carried out by Fulani Herdsmen.
Presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie took to Twitter on Saturday to make the allegation. While responding to a statement by Jonathan’s aide, Reno Omokri, Onochie stated that Jonathan was a grand patron of Miyetti Allah cattle breeders association. Miyetti Allah recently claimed responsibility for the Benue killings.
She wrote; “When Reno Omokri wrote his piece, “Nigeria, A Nation Once now an Abbatoire, I saw no need to respond to him, knowing that he is a habitual liar, he has lied many times before using his name and other aliases.
This time around also I knew he was lying when he said President Muhammadu Buhari was somehow complicit in the Herdsmen vs. Farmers clash because he was a Patron of Miyetti Allah Association, which is not true by the way.
It was just a deliberate attempt to cause mischief, fan the embers of hatred among citizens and their leader, politicise a very tragic event but he failed to produce even a little of evidence. So, should we believe the words of a lying Pastor in an era of fake Prophets?
Lo and behold who is the real Life Patron of Miyetti Allah, not any other person but his erstwhile boss, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. So should we assume that Jonathan was behind the incessant and condemnable attacks which predated President Muhammadu Buhari Administration?”
