Herdsmen killings: Cardinal Okogie attacks Buhari, says ‘cow has more value than myself’

The Archbishop of Lagos, Cardinal Anthony Okogie has lamented the continued killing of Nigerians by Fulani herdsmen across the country.

Okogie said under the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, a “cow has more value than myself.”

Speaking with The Sun, the clergyman also regretted that Christians in government were keeping quiet over the killings.

“Enough is enough! That is my message and the message of the people today: Enough is enough, because it can lead to something else.

“Carnage is not good. Spilling blood is not good. Then it means that a cow has more value than myself. We are not in India. This is Nigeria.”

Noting that Nigerians were fed up with the killings across the country, Okogie insisted that it appeared Buhari was “asleep. ”

On the protest staged by Catholic faithfuls across the country, the Caridnal said the protests were to awaken the President to the seriousness of the state of insecurity in the country.

He said, “As a good father, if somebody is disturbing you in your house, what will you do? Will you allow the person to continue to disturb you?

“That is what we are saying. It is getting rampant and getting too much. Now, we are trying to make the head of state to do something, to wake up if he is asleep. It is annoying.”
