Killings: Buhari Vows To Deal With Killer Herdsmen

President Muhammadu Buhari.

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Monday vowed to deal with culprits responsible for the recent massacre of Nigerians across the country.

This is as he promised not to shield or protect any killer herdsman who maimed and killed the people of the Benue State, ordering the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to arrest and prosecute the perpetrators of the recent killings in the state.

He stated this after meeting with leaders of thought from Benue State over the recent killings in the state by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

President Buhari, who made the vow via his Twitter handle, after the meeting, said further: -I have just finished a meeting with stakeholders from Benue State.

-My message to them: I will fully keep the oath I swore to protect all Nigerians. The Police, Army and DSS are working hard to keep Benue safe, and to bring all the perpetrators of the killings to justice.”

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, who is a Benue indigenes, however, has been busing explaining the need for colonies that would solve the continued herdsmen/farmers conflict in parts of the country.

On his part Governor Samuel Ortom said even though he now understands the difference between colony and ranching, but Benue State does not have 10,000 hectares the Federal Government was requesting for the establishment of colonies for cattle rearing.
