BNC threatens retaliation against herdsmen.

“Mr. Governor, you will appreciate that most visitors and settlers in Benin Kingdom have been paying our hospitality with hates and other stereotypical tendencies of ingratitude and the need to seek your intervention urgently cannot be overemphasized as our youths are on the verge of seeking self help with unpleasant repercussions.”

THE Benin National Congress, BNC, a Bini socio-cultural organisation, has petitioned Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, lamenting that their people were being raped, kidnapped and their farms destroyed by Fulani herdsmen, threatening that they may ask their people to retaliate in the next three weeks if urgent steps were not taken to call the herdsmen to order.

Governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseki In a letter addressed to the governor by Mr Raymond Evbuomwan, BNC Director of Correspondence, it said: “Our findings portray a picture of desperate ‘settlers’ who have been recruited for unclear devious objectives.

Their massive assembly around our farming and fishing communities has forced our people out of our villages due to the rising cases of rape, brutality and the untouchable toga they carry based on the seeming protection they enjoy from law enforcement agencies.

“Mr. Governor, you will appreciate that most visitors and settlers in Benin Kingdom have been paying our hospitality with hates and other stereotypical tendencies of ingratitude and the need to seek your intervention urgently cannot be overemphasized as our youths are on the verge of seeking self help with unpleasant repercussions.”
