Gov. Bala Mohammed defends armed herdsmen, says I use AK-47 for protection




Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State on Friday defended his comment about armed herders, explaining that he used AK-47 as a figure of speech for protection.

According to the governor, Fulani's are carrying weapons to protect their lives and cows. I myself i use AK-47 for protection, he said.

The governor came under fire following his last week’s statement that herdsmen in the country have taken to self-protection because they are being exposed and attacked across the country.

“But is it a figure of speech to show you the despondence, the desperation and frustration and the agony that this particular person is exposed to by his own people, by his own tribe and by other tribes who have all seen him as a criminal and therefore, he has the inalienable right to protect himself,” the governor said during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
