Plateau attacks: Gowon speaks on Buhari’s alleged involvement in killings

Plateau attacks: Gowon speaks on Buhari’s alleged involvement in killings

A former Head of State and National Chairman of Nigeria Prays, NP, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, retd., has spoken on the alleged involvement of President Muhammadu Buhari in killings across the country by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

He shared his thoughts on the President’s involvement while declaring that, “the people arrested (for the killing of innocent Nigerians in Plateau State) should be investigated and prosecuted in Jos where the crime was committed” and not in Abuja which the military had suggested.

He went on to clear Buhari of having anything to do with the perpetrators, saying, ” the Buhari I know will not be involved.”

The former Head of State said this when he visited the Plateau State Governor, Lalong at the Government House in Jos, yesterday.

Gowon was also received by the Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Prof Sonni Tyodden, members of the State Executive Council, including the Secretary to the State Government, Chief Rufus Bature and Lalong’s Chief of Staff, Chief John Dafaan.

Gowon was in the state to condole with the people over the recent killings, and “decried the past practice where suspects arrested were taken to Abuja and eventually released.”

“People arrested should be investigated and prosecuted in Jos where the crime was committed,” the elder statesman emphasised.

He termed social media reports blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for the killings as unfortunate, adding that, “The Buhari I know will not be involved, certainly no leader will encourage the killing of his people.”
