Saraki seeks end to herdsmen attacks

The Senate president, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday, called for an end to the spate of deadly violence blamed on herdsmen in various parts of Nigeria to safeguard the country’s unity and security.

Many communities, particularly in the North Central and Southern states, have faced severe attacks allegedly perpetrated Fulani herdsmen recently.

Speaking at the Senate plenary, Mr. Saraki urged the Senate Committee on Agriculture, chaired by Adamu Abdullahi, to fast-track the execution of the report of the Senate public hearing aimed at addressing the herdsmen crisis.

After the plenary, Mr. Saraki took to his official social media pages on Twitter and Facebook, to emphasise the imperative of curbing growing herdsmen violence to safeguard Nigeria’s unity.

“It is important that the violence attributed to herdsmen is addressed and curbed to ensure the safety, well-being and unity of the people and the country,” Mr. Saraki said.

On Monday, no fewer than five people were killed in Nimbo, Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State by suspected herdsmen.

In March, PREMIUM TIMES published a special report featuring horrifying details of attacks by suspected in Agatu, Benue State.

The report detailed how communities and farmlands were burnt down, and how charred bodies littered the streets.
