Historian, Professor Banji Akintoye, has supported the proposition that the Federal Government ought to declare killer herdsmen across the country as terrorists.
According to him, they appear to be more dangerous than Boko Haram terrorists and therefore, must be stopped before their activities get out of hand.
He said, “We can’t have a country in which people feel that they are free to move around, killing people at random and at will. We cannot have a country like that, obviously, these are terrorists and the government owes Nigeria the duty of getting them out of Nigeria.”
Professor Soyinka had on Thursday, asked the Federal Government to declare the criminals as terrorists and give a stern and final warning to perpetrators of the wanton killings across states in the country.
