Not only did he disown the move, if at all, he indeed ordered the Police to arrest anyone or group which parades itself as Fulani Vigilante.
The governor’s position was decisive even as it was pointedly consequential.
He disown the move, and ordered the police to arrest anyone or group which parades itself as Fulani Vigilante.
