A Fulani group, Association of Matasan Fulani of Nigeria (AMFON) on Sunday condemned the incessant killings being perpetrated by some criminal elements across the country.

Aliyu Ibrahim-Shaibu, the AMFON Secretary-General, made the condemnation while addressing reporters shortly after the association’s meeting in support of the APC Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu in Okene, Kogi.

“As Fulanis, we are not happy with the incessant killings of innocent people by heartless criminal elements across the country and condemn it in strong terms. 

“We are so worried by the number of people that are being killed on a daily basis, therefore we call on the Federal Government to rise to the occasion and bring the perpetrators to book,” he said.

Mr Ibrahim-Shaibu said there was the urgent need for Nigerians to assist security agencies with useful information on the criminals, to track them down to face the wrath of the law

The scribe said that leaders and members of AMFON were solidly behind Mr Tinubu to actualise his ambition to become Nigeria’s next president in 2023.

“The aim of our gathering here today is to mobilise for Tinubu and ensure that he secures significant votes from us,” he said.
