Oni who made the assertion on Tuesday, August 30, accused politicians of complicity in the constant attacks on communities across the country by suspected herdsmen. Breaking Times reports that the APC chieftain made the allegation while speaking to journalists at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, he said that the intent of the politicians was to destabilise the Federal Government.
It would be recalled that recently, communities in some states, including Benue, Plateau, Enugu, Nasarawa, Kaduna and Taraba had been attacked by the suspected herdsmen, who carried arms. Chief Oni said:
“This, personally worries me because these gunmen who have suddenly become so notorious, invading villages and so on, are people that have always been around. “My guess is that many of these are sponsored by people who have so much money and want to create instability.
“I believe that many of these have political motives and people who just want to trouble the government of the day. “People who don’t want peace because they believe peace will also not be what they will want to see. It is very, very difficult.
“You will just hear one version here today, another striking us there tomorrow and so on. “It is also a way of saying that what we are battling with is not ordinary,” he said.
