Buhari Concerned About Fulani/Farmers Clash – Adesina

By Our Correspondent
The presidency has dismissed claims in some quarters that President Muhammadu Buhari has kept mute over the killings by Fulani herdsmen in the country.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina faulted those claiming the president has been indifferent on the herdsmen/farmers clashes’, saying it was unfortunate that people only chose what they wanted to hear.
He said, “It is not true that the President is sectional and that he has been silent on the Fulani herdsmen crisis because he is a Fulani.”
“That is not true. The President has not been silent on the matter. It is unfortunate that some people choose what they want to hear.
“The President has spoken against the crisis many times. We also issued a press statement on the matter”, he explained.
Speaking further, Adesina said that the government would not leave any stone unturned in its desire to find a lasting solution to the problem of killings by Fulani herdsmen in the country.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian police have declared war on Fulani herdsmen bearing arms following wave of attacks by herdsmen across the country.
The Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase who spoke through the Force Public Relations Officer, Bisi Kolawole said that the police will henceforth arrest and prosecute any herdsman found carrying guns or any dangerous weapon.
