Group seeks AU intervention on herders’ activities
The Community for Peace and CorruptFree Society has urged African leaders to unite in finding a lasting solution to the wanton destruction of lives and property by herdsmen.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja yesterday, the National President of the society, Engr. Ahmad Zakari Nguroje, said most of the herdsman involved in mass killings migrated from neighbouring countries.
“Let us be frank on this matter, unless the African Union steps into this matter, there is nothing much President Buhari can do, inshort, in my personal view, the president is handicapped in this matter because we share over 150 borders with our neighbours in Cameroon, Niger, Chad and a host of others, so, this matter needs to be discussed at the AU meetings so that every country would arrange gracing reserves for their peoples instead of leaving them to come to Nigeria to cause mayhem,” he said.
