Pupil Threatens to Kill FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, Over Cow Herding Ban
A young boy herding cows in Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has been captured in a viral video threatening to kill FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, if he attempts to stop him from herding livestock in the capital. This incident comes after Wike expressed his determination to ban herding activities in Abuja, emphasizing that it does not contribute positively to the city's aesthetics. The video, shared on Twitter, has garnered significant attention and mixed reactions from viewers.

A young pupil herding cows in Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has become the subject of controversy after he was captured in a viral video threatening to kill the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, if the minister attempts to disrupt his cow herding activities in the nation's capital.

In the video, the young boy is informed by a man in a car that the minister is approaching. However, the boy responds in the Hausa language, claiming to possess spiritual powers that would enable him to deal with the minister and even cause his demise.

It can be recalled that Minister Nyesom Wike publicly declared his intent to ban herding activities in Abuja during a press conference on August 21. He emphasized that these activities do not contribute to the capital city's beauty. This statement was made on the same day the former Rivers State governor was sworn in as the FCT Minister.

The viral video was shared on Twitter by Imran Mohammed, attracting a significant amount of attention. As of the time of writing this report, the video has garnered around 99 thousand views, 696 likes, 57 bookmarks, 40 quotes, and 189 reposts.

Responding to the video, social media users expressed varied reactions. Dale Bells, for instance, challenges Minister Wike, expressing doubt that he can take any action against the boy. He proclaimed, "Who is Wike sef? Make he try am" (Who is Wike? Let him try it).

Joseph Ubong deems the video disheartening and cautions against finding humor in it. He questions those who laughed, asking what is funny about the situation. Ubong prays for forgiveness for anyone who wishes harm on government officials.

Another commentator, Adeniji Adekunle, highlights the importance of education and raises concerns about the boy's absence from school. He reminds readers that education is compulsory for children between the ages of 6 and 15 in Nigeria. Adekunle suggests that the issue at hand is not only about herding on federal highways but also about addressing why this child is not in school.

Sharing similar sentiments, Bamisile Kayode condemns the current situation and questions the legality of herding cows on a federal highway. He inquires, "And I want to ask, is it constitutional to rear cows on the federal expressway? Or have we lost our sense of reasoning?"

This incident highlights the ongoing debate surrounding herding activities and the need for better solutions. It also raises concerns about the welfare of children engaged in such activities, as education should be a priority for every child in the country.
