Enough Is Enough For Killer Herdsmen – FG

On January 8, 2018 23 Comments

The Federal Government has assured Nigerians in all parts of the country that it will not condone further attacks by herdsmen.

Minister of Interior, Lieutenant General Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd), gave the assurance on Monday at a meeting with some state governors in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

He told the meeting that President Muhammadu Buhari remains committed to ensuring peace in every part of the country.


State governors present are Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna), Abubakar Bello (Niger), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Darius Ishaku (Taraba), and Mohammad Jibrilla (Adamawa) among others.

The Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, who was also at the meeting, was worried about the increasing clashes between herdsmen and farmers.

He, however, blamed criminally minded persons for taking the advantage of conflicts between farmers and herdsmen to cause mayhem in the country.

Mr Ogbeh also faulted the past administration for having done nothing to protect the interest of herdsmen.

He further revealed the Federal Government’s plan to establish cattle colonies to be protected by cattle rangers, as well as provide water, pasture and security for such colonies.

    Because Buhari is a Fulani man that is why it has become gvt duty to provide all this for Fulani herds men to take care of there catle. To start with how much are this Fulanis are paying as tax if the pay at all? In Nigeria is there any business people are doing and it is the gvt the prove them with capital and shop and also tax free? When did it becomes the culture of Nigeria gvt to gv people all the needed for their business or is it because Buhari is trying to start it?
