Can Benue people loan Ortom to Ekiti state to stop ongoing Fulani attacks?

Three days ago, some Fulani herders from Nassarawa and Taraba states entered into some communities in Ekiti state and killed several people after destroying their properties.
Up till now, the state governor, Kayode Fayemi, hasn’t said anything reasonable about the attacks. He failed to condemn the attacks because he is playing the ‘good boy’ to President Muhammadu Buhari who happens to be the grand patron to the Herders Association, Miyetti Allah.
Does this mean that Governor Fayemi prefers to have his people, the people that voted him as governor, killed by Fulani herders than standing up to the Presidency just like his Benue state counterpart, Governor Samuel Ortom, did to save Benue people from being killed everyday?
Recall that Ortom bagged the title of ‘The Defender of Benue Valley’ as a result of the risk he took by standing up to the Presidency and the APC in his quest to protect his subjects. Ortom took a risk that isn’t common to ensure that Fulani herders stop their attacks on innocent Benue people.
To stop the attacks in Ekiti state, the people of the state need to call on Benue people to loan them Governor Ortom to defend them or better still ask Governor Fayemi to stop playing the ‘good boy’ and stand up to the Presidency as Ortom did to stop imminent Fulani attacks on Ekiti communities.
