former Head of State and National Chairman of Nigeria Prays, NP, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, retd., has spoken on the alleged involvement of President Muhammadu Buhari in killings across the country by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
He went on to clear Buhari of having anything to do with the perpetrators, saying, ” the Buhari I know will not be involved.”
Gowon was also received by the Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Prof Sonni Tyodden, members of the State Executive Council, including the Secretary to the State Government, Chief Rufus Bature and Lalong’s Chief of Staff, Chief John Dafaan.
Gowon was in the state to condole with the people over the recent killings, and “decried the past practice where suspects arrested were taken to Abuja and eventually released.”
He termed social media reports blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for the killings as unfortunate, adding that, “The Buhari I know will not be involved, certainly no leader will encourage the killing of his people.”
