The Ijaw Youths Council (IYC), on Wednesday, said that terrorists, who now disguise themselves as Fulani herdsmen, are responsible for the killings of people in remote communities across the country.
A statement signed by its Spokesman, Mr. Eric Omare described as barbaric, the killing of innocent Nigerians in the Southwest.
Omare said the traditional Fulani herdsmen have been conducting their business peacefully for decades without resorting to killing of their neighbours.
He said the sponsored attacks could be a plot by disgruntled persons to pit one ethnic group against the other so as to destabilise the country.
He said: “We are of the view that the attacks are being carried out by terrorists who are disguising themselves as Fulani herdsmen.
“The traditional Fulani herdsmen have been grazing their cattle for decades in different parts of the country without such attacks until recently when the attacks became persistent.”
