Kalu: Politicians behind herdsmen attacks

Following the recent killings in some parts of the country allegedly by herders, a former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu has said prominent Nigerians against the anti-corruption war of the Federal Government are the major sponsors.

Kalu who sympathized with the victims and families of those who were  killed in Taraba and Benue States, said perpetrators were mostly returnees from Niger Republic who infiltrated the people and pretended to be Fulani herders. He said these killer herders were mostly sponsored by politicians who were aggrieved because the President blocked the various channels by which the country’s resources were being siphoned.

Kalu said when he was the governor of Abia State, he was  never in good terms with some  rich individuals who were busy milking the state. He said there was trouble around the country now because President Muhammadu Buhari had ended the old ways of handling the nation’s resources .

Kalu spoke in his country home, Igbere,  during the launch of free interest loan to Abians in Abia North Senatorial District by the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie Oyegun, said the free-interest loan to Abians, which is in conjunction with Orji Uzor Kalu foundation,  would benefit 15 people to start with.
