Doyin Okupe, a former aide to ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan, has suggested that the spate of the so-called herdsmen attacks nationwide might support the government claims that terrorist group ISIS, might have infiltrate Nigeria.

Okupe, who made the statement on Wednesday, February 14, stated that the random attacks in Benue, Taraba, Adamawa, Plateau , Kaduna, Zamfara, Enugu, Anambra, Edo, Ogun, Ekiti, Kwara among other states, does not seem to add up as herdsmen attacks.

He said the government itself initially believed these acts were committed by the herdsmen in their attempt to secure the lives of their herds.

Okupe, however, stated that the DSS in a briefing to the government noted the country had been infiltrated by agents and converts of the terrorist group ISIS.

He said it was a vital information that had been ignored by Nigerians due to the overwhelming emotion brought about by the number of people killed in the attacks.
