A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly representing Kosofe II State Constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Hon. Tunde Braimoh, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to put measures in place to check criminal activities of Fulani herdsmen.
The lawmaker made the call on Wednesday in Lagos in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.
The Chairman of the Lagos Assembly’s Committee on Information, Strategy and Security said that taking such a step would boost the integrity of the president and re-affirm the people’s confidence in his administration.
“The President needs to be courageous; we know him as a man of integrity, he will not be swayed away by myopic, parochial, religious and inglorious tendencies.
“We want him to protect his integrity. Fulani herdsmen have done a lot of havoc in Nigeria.
“Fulani herdsmen are aggressive and excessive, they wreak havoc on innocent citizens in various parts of Nigeria.
“The president needs to deal with the issue of Fulani herdsmen decisively. They have constituted nuisance across the country”, Braimoh said.
According to him, the Federal Government’s investment on the herdsmen through nomadic education has not yielded the desired results.
The lawmaker advised government to change the system of education for the herdsmen and build ranches for them.
He said that the government should be able to educate the herdsmen to know their rights from the wrong.
Braimoh recalled that some herdsmen had once brought their cattle to graze on the highway in some parts of Lagos.
He urged the Department of State Security to be diligent and proactive in handling security issues affecting herdsmen.
NAN reports that there had been protests in some parts of the country over the activities of herdsmen.
Social and economic activities were on Tuesday disrupted at Asaba in Delta as thousands of people took to the street to protest the growing involvement of Fulani herdsmen in criminal activities in the state.
