Sultan of Sokoto condemns death of Plateau Monarch, but cautions against ascribing killings to fulani herdsmen

In a condolence visit to the Gbong Gwom Jos, Da Jacob Gyang Buba, in his palace in Jishe, on Wednesday, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar lll, condemned the brutal killing of the traditional ruler of the Kulere people, in Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State, Saf Ron Kulere, Sir Lazarus Agai.
Agai, a first class monarch, was
killed along with his wife, son and orderly, while returning from his farm in his village of Sha.
The Sultan described the murder as a barbaric, abominable act, but also cautioned the media against jumping into conclusions and linking the killings to Fulani herdsmen.
Alhaji Abubakar called for tolerance and peaceful coexistence amongst residents.
He said, “You don’t take somebody’s life, because life belongs to God; and it is only He that determines when and how a human being would die.”
Abubakar called on Nigerians to expose the killer of Saf Ron Kulere, stressing that “there are people whether herdsmen or farmers who don’t love peace and would do everything to foment trouble.
“We should go back to our cultural system and fish out the bad eggs among us by partnering security agencies.”
He regretted that the incident happened at a time peace was gradually returning to Plateau, and called on religious leaders to preach tolerance.
He said, “We are very delighted to see the return of peace and we pray for its sustenance. Without peace, there can’t be meaningful development in the state and the country.
“We want peace on the Plateau. As traditional leaders, we can go extra mile to bring peace to our communities. We are brothers from Adam and Eve; so we call on religious leaders to preach tolerance.”
