He urged stakeholders at the summit to listen with anointed ears and avoid quoting him.
What Pastor Enoch Adeboye said about Ruga and Fulani herdsmen
“Please, do not quote me, quote my friend. Listen with anointed ears. I have a friend who is a mathematician and he is very funny. My mathematician friend told me a story that a cattlerearer kills your brother and your brother’s blood spilled on the grass and the cow eats from the grass, directly or indirectly, you are also participating in the killing of that your brother,” Pastor Adeboye said.
“Someone cannot be killing your brother and you are eating his cow meat. My friend said if you begin to allow them to rear cow at your backyard, very soon, they will send you out of your house. My friend also said that even the scientists have said that red meat is not good for our health and we are buying cow meat, why can’t we eat fish which has been confirmed to be the best for us. My friend said if we stop eating cow meat for a while, the man who sells it will come and renegotiate the terms,” he added.
Christian leaders in Nigeria led by the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev (Dr) Supo Ayokunle, had asked President Muhammadu Buhari to completely scrap Ruga Settlement idea and ban the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association.
