I Instructed People To Poison Our Water If You Attack Ekiti – Fayose Threatens Herdsmen

The Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has warned rampaging herdsmen attacking and killing rural dwellers in parts of the country to stay away from his state or risk having people of the state poison the source of water for the cattle reared by the herdsmen.
Speaking in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, on Tuesday, Fayose asserted that the time had come for Nigerians to defend themselves in the face of unwarranted attacks and killings by suspected herdsmen across the country.
The Governor, who cited the mindless bloodletting recently unleashed on Benue and Enugu communities, reasoned that it appears Boko Haram terrorists have changed its identity to the marauding herdsmen, unleashing terror on innocent citizens of the country.
The Tribune reports Fayose as revealing that he has instructed his people to poison the water in their area with a particular brand of chemical used against fungal attacks in the event of any herdsmen attack in Ekiti.
“It seems Boko Haram has changed identity to herdsmen now. You as journalists must speak out, the killings are under reported. Is it about the mass burial in Kaduna State, the Agatu saga or the recent killing which happened on Monday? Ask questions,” the Governor stated.
