Fulani Herdsmen Issue 🔥.

Minister Of Information Addresses Nigerians On Herdsmen Issue .💣💣

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed stated this during a Town Hall meeting organized by the Federal Government in Abuja.

Buttressing his claim, the Minister cited instances in Zamfara and Kebbi States, where there had been similar Tribal crisis.

The Minister stated that those involved in the crisis were all Muslims.

Mohammed said, “For those who might be tempted to view the clashes between farmers and herdsmen from the ethno-religious prism, I will cite two instances to debunk such postulation. Zamfara state is probably the epicentre of cattle rustling in Nigeria.

“Those who rustle cattle are Muslims. The owners of the cattle they rustle are Muslims. Both groups most likely belong to the same ethnic group.

“Then, there is the case of Kebbi state, where 70 percent of those who are in jail are there due to the clashes between farmers and herdsmen.

“The farmers whose crops are eaten by cows are Muslim Fulani, and the herders whose cows eat the crops are Muslim Fulani, same religion; same ethnicity.

“Yet, clashes still occur, to such a level that people land in jail everyday. I have brought these examples so that we can be open to speak about the real causes of the constant clashes that have captured national and international attention and turned former neighbours to bitter enemies, so that together we can help to evolve a lasting solution to this crisis.”
