“…may they and their generations be destroyed…Let the arrow of God locate them”.
Nigerian Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church delivered what some are calling an outrageous reaction to the recent killing of about 86 people in Nigeria’s Plateau State by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
He was quoted saying:
“One of the leaders in Plateau State spoke yesterday that since the crisis started, 52 villages were now desolate.
“For everyone behind this crisis, may they and their generations be destroyed. May their generations perish. May they never be remembered.
“Anyone who has made people’s land and families desolate, we declare them desolate today.
“Let the arrow of God locate them. Let it locate their sponsors. Let it locate all the perpetrators. Let it locate anyone backing them in government from today.”
The violent clashes between between farmers and cattle herders in Plateau State left 86 people dead and 6 injured. Reports indicate that fighting started when some farmers killed five Fulani herders; sparking a brutal retaliation from the rest of the herdsmen.
