Herdsmen killings: Shekarau speaks on what Buhari must do to end crisis

Ibrahim Shekarau, former Governor of Kano ‎State, on Monday appealed to the federal government to bring to an end the crisis between farmers and herdsmen across the country.
He said government must take appropriate measures in ending the crisis because its already affecting the unity of Nigeria.

Speaking in Kaduna, the former Minister of Education alleged that some unpatriotic individuals were already trying to give the crisis a tribal and religious colouration.

He said, “The conflict is affecting the unity of the country. You see, there are suspicions. Herdsmen being suspected, farmers being suspected to the point of killings.

“It is not just the issue of herdsmen/farmers. ‎You can see in some communities it has degenerated to tribal. Very soon, some people will make it look religious or sectional and therefore it will become a problem for the country.

“We will not allow anybody to politicise the issue because it is a matter of life and death. Lives are being lost, properties are being lost. Even if you want to come and govern people, if people are dying, their properties and houses being burnt; who are you going to govern?

“So this issue is very important to all of us because it can even affect the economy. If there is no peace there can be no buying and selling, which means poverty will increase.”
