The Federal Government should declare killer herdsmen in the country terrorists, according to the Bishop of the Diocese of Badagry, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rt. Rev. Babatunde  Adeyemi.

Rev. Adeyemi noted this in a statement on Wednesday where he also condemned the killings in the North Central region of the country.

According to the cleric, “We (Anglican Communion), condemn these mindless killings in our country. If the Indigenous People of Biafra could be termed a terrorist group, those who perpetrate these heinous acts should also be termed terrorists.

“But because these set of people come from a particular part of the country, they enjoy protection from the Federal Government.

“But we in the Anglican Communion shall not keep quiet because Christians are also being killed in cold blood. The Primate of the Anglican Communion has also spoken about it.

“That is why we are telling President Muhammadu  Buhari to act now because we strongly believe that if he succeeds in addressing insecurity, his re-election ambition might sail through.”
