Samson Okwu, a member of the house of representatives, says the comment by Femi Adesina, spokesman of President Muhammadu Buhari, on Benue killings is a “statement of failure”.

On Wednesday, Adesina said between 2013 and May 2015 when Goodluck Jonathan was president, 756 people were killed in herdsmen attacks.

“Let nobody say that all this is happening because we have a Fulani president,” the presidential spokesman had said.

But speaking with journalists on Thursday, Okwu who represents Obi/ Oju federal constituency of Benue in the house said during Jonathan’s administration, the spate of killings in the country were not this bad.

He said Adesina should apologise to the Benue people and stop blaming the Jonathan administration.

“I think it is a statement of failure, especially at this time that Nigerians voted for All Progressive Congress (APC) so that the insecurity would stop,” the Benue lawmaker said when he was asked to react to Adesina’s statement.

“During Jonathan’s administration these killings were not spread in the country as witnessed now, the insecurity was only in some parts of the north-east and north-central but now there’s Enugu Massacre, Edo massacre, Rivers massacre and then Benue.

“I think Mr. Femi should apologise to the people of Benue and Nigerians instead of blaming their failure on President Goodluck Jonathan.”
