The Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Mathew Kukah has said blaming Nigerias insecurity problems on herdsmen, banditry and Fulani won’t help the country.

Kukah lamented that criminal elements are perpetuating evil and Nigerians are blaming herdsmen.

He spoke during the burial ceremony of Air Peace airline chairman’s father, Chief Micheal Onyema in Mbosi, Anambra state, over the weekend.

The Bishop stated that the issue of banditry, armed robbery cases and killings currently going on in some parts of the country should be tackled “holistically, instead of taking the easy path of blaming every crime on herdsmen.”

According to Kukah: “We are all herdsmen. We are all nomads. I have a couple of goats I got as gift that I am currently rearing.

“So. I am also a herdsman. We should always look beyond the surface and tackle every problem head-on. The country’s problem is much more complex”.

Kukah’s remark is coming at a time herdsmen were accused of killing the Catholic Parish Priest of St. James, the Greater Parish, Ugbawka, in Enugu State, Rev FR Paul Offu.
