President Muhammadu Buhari has said politicians are taking advantage of the herdsmen-farmers‘ crisis across the country to score political points.
The president revealed this via Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Monday. Mr Shehu wrote;
“We know that a number of geographical and economic factors are contributing to the longstanding herdsmen/farmers clashes.
“But we also know that politicians are taking advantage of the situation. This is incredibly unfortunate.
“Nigerians affected by the herdsmen/ farmer clashes must always allow the due process of the law to take its course rather than taking matters into their own hands.’’
