Senator (Barrister) Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege who is representing Delta Central at the National Assembly, has assured Nigerians that the issue of Herdsmen killings with impunity in the country will be addressed promptly by the APC-led government, adding that the police has not done enough to tackle this menace.

Senator Omo-Agege who was in Sapele recently to inaugurate the Executive Officers across the wards in Sapele for “Senator Omo-Agege Again for 2019”, told APC members at Okpe Grammar School, Sapele, venue for the inauguration ceremony, that it is the duty of the police to arrest all Fulani Herdsmen killing Nigerians with AK 47 rifle, and not that of the president.

He recalled that under the Fire Arms act of the country, no Nigerian has the right to carry AK 47 rifle, except such a person is issued the license by the president, while it is the duty of the IG of police to issue license to carry any other kind of rifle, decrying the failure of the police to go about arresting these people.

He remarked that the issue on ground is the failure of law enforcement agencies that rather go about looking for innocent Nigerians to arrest for possessing guns, without looking for these Fulani herdsmen to arrest to curb their excesses and the innocent killings in Nigeria.

He told the people that all those carrying AK 47 guns are from Libya who came to the country because of climate change in their country since their land is no longer good enough for grazing, remarking that even though Nigerians did not disallow them, it is the duty of the police to stop them from carrying arms during the grazing of their cows.

Senator Omo-Agege said neither Mr. President nor any other lawmaker in the country is happy with the unfortunate killings of innocent Nigerians by herdsmen across the country, assuring that the APC-led government is making frantic move to fight the situation.

He appealed to the people to always support Buhari’s government and APC, given the magnitude of development he has brought to Nigerians, pointing out that the primary schools’ feeding, his N-power empowerment programmes and other job creation initiatives which the Delta State government copied from, is very significant which other previous regimes did not attempt.

The lawmaker explained further that members of the Peoples Democratic Party are condemning and sabotaging the president’s effort because he asked them to return the money they stole from the nation’s coffers, saying that they are quite aware that he (Buhari) is doing his best for the country.

He solicited for the cooperation of all Deltans by way of their support for all APC candidates in the general elections, assuring that the party would ensure all loopholes of rigging from other parties are blocked, while commending their efforts in the last local government election which he said the APC won across the state convincingly but were rigged out.

The Delta State House of Assembly hopeful in Sapele under the platform of the APC, Hon. Moses Ogodo, commended Senator Omo-Agege for coming down to Sapele for the L.G.A and ward inauguration of the “Senator Omo-Agege again for Senator 2019”, assuring that they in Sapele will ensure that he is not disappointed, as the new body will make him proud and support him for his return to the upper chamber.
