10 dead in fresh Fulani Herdsmen attack in Benue community


President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said the killings in some parts of Nigeria would soon come to an end as his administration was finding solutions to them.

The President’s assurance followed a fresh attack by Fulani herdsmen on Tuesday night, during which 10 persons were killed, while many others were injured in the Logo and Ukum local government areas of Benue State.

According to a statement by Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke while receiving the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, in London.

Responding to his guest’s comment on the clashes between herdsmen and farmers in different parts of Nigeria, the President, who noted that the problem was not new, added that the situation was compounded by the influx of armed men from the Sahel region into West Africa.

Buhari said the problem should not been seen from the point of view of religion, saying it was sociological and economic.
