Buhari orders Olonishakin, Arase To Go After Killer Herdsmen

Muhammadu-BuhariPresident Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonishakin and the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, to leave no stone unturned in apprehending the herdsmen that are terrorizing people in some parts of the country.
Buhari, who gave the directive Wednesday, also asked the security Chiefs to secure areas where the killer herders are operating.
Many communities, particularly in the North Central, North East and Southern states, have recently come under deadly attacks allegedly perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen.
On Monday, no fewer than five people were killed in Nimbo, Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State by suspected herdsmen.
In spite of the recent assurance by the Federal government that Nigerians will soon feel the impact of Buhari’s “silent” approach to resolving the incessant bloody clashes, which are usually between farming communities and the cattle rearers, a cross-section of Nigerians believe enough is not being done to put an end to the excesses of the rampaging herdsmen.
Buhari, who was represented by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, spoke during a public presentation of “Who will love my country: Ideas of building the Nigeria of our dreams”, a book authored by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
The president condemned the attacks by the herders.
