Soyinka made this call on the heels of the invasion of his Ilugun Village in Abeokuta residence by the herdsmen for the second time on April 15.

The Nobel laureate, who spoke on the theme, Sacred cow, on Friday at a forum in Freedom Park, Lagos, described the invasion by Fulani herdsmen as “rampant” and ” a deliberate act of provocation” adding that there is urgent need to force the leaders to desist from turning blind eyes to the menace.

He said, “Herdsmen are worse than Boko Haram. Some kind of action is required, maybe declare a day of beef boycott to compel the leadership to take holistic action.”

Earlier Soyinka said while talking on Boko Haram, “They do not have respect for human life. They used human beings for suicidal bombing. Why should they not use cows as suicide bombers?”
