IMO State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, yesterday, lamented the unchecked killings by herdsmen, saying that Nigeria had been bedeviled by the menace of terrorism and herdsmen killings, describing the situation as unfortunate. Chief Rochas Okorocha This came as the  Catholic Bishop of Umuahia Diocese, Rt. Rev. Lucius   Ugorji warned that Nigeria is sitting on a time bomb that could explode anytime if the killings by Fulani herdsmen are not stopped urgently by the Federal Government. This is even as the  Igede people of Benue State resident in Anambra and Delta states have also joined millions of Nigerians to berate the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari for its alleged shielding of the herdsmen from facing the wrath of the law over obvious terrorist activities they have been carrying out against innocent citizens. Okorocha’s statement came through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, while speaking at this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration held at Heroes Square, Owerri. Okorocha said he was not happy that, “Nigeria today is passing through a very difficult time. We are having so many challenges, ranging from terrorism to activities of the evil herdsmen and those who have chosen to kill for no just reason.” The governor, who is known for supporting the Buhari-led government further said: “It comes to a point when a nation may look hopeless and helpless. This is a very difficult moment in the history of the nation, but suffice it to say that we are consoled by the fact that we have gallant soldiers who are ready to lay their lives to save our nation.”
