NIDOA, in a statement by Mrs. Patience Key, Chairperson of NIDO USA and Dr. George Nwogu, Public Relations Director, NIDO Americas Board of Trustees, condemned what they termed the needless and mindless killings of innocent Nigerians by armed herdsmen.

According to them “It is appalling that in spite of the country’s strict gun control laws, persons purported to be herdsmen carry and use military-style assault weapons openly with impunity. They continued “These highly armed herdsmen pose terrorist threats to all law-abiding unarmed Nigerians and they must not be allowed to carry on unchecked’’. Adding that armed herdsmen’s terrorism against Nigerians should be condemned by all decent and peace-loving people. ‘Sic’

They strongly denounced activities by the herdsmen describing it as barbaric and reckless; they urged the government to bring to book the perpetrators of these dreadful acts.

NIDOA maintained that audacious actions of the herdsmen are without regard for human lives and the laws of our land adding that it represents a clear and present danger as well as a threat to the peace and unity of the country.

Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation Americas also asked the government not to waver but deploy all instruments of state security forces not only to punish the perpetrators but to prevent future wanton killings of innocent Nigerians.
