What Buhari must do to Politicians backing Herdsmen Killings – Falana

Prominent Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana has mandated the Federal government to find the masterminds of the killings in some parts of the country and bring them to justice.

Falana has already gone to court to sure the attorney-general of the Federation and Minister for Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami and states’ attorneys general, in order for the court to compel them to prosecute all those behind the various killings in the country.

Speaking to Journalists in Ondo state, Falana said; “I already have a case in court seeking to compel the government to ensure that ranches are established around the country; happily now, the government has taken that decision.

But with respect to the killings, I am suing the Attorney General of the Federation and the state Attorneys General with a view to compelling them to prosecute all the merchants of death in our country.

Specifically, I want them (killers) charged with illegal possession of firearms because I have established that they have no licenses to bear arms. We also want them charged with culpable homicide or murder, kidnapping, armed robbery and the like. Because if we do not address the impunity with which these killings are carried out, we will not get to the end of them. This is the essence of that case, to challenge the government to be alert to its responsibilities.”
