NASFAT charges Buhari to prosecute perpetrators of farmers, herders clash




President Muhammadu Buhari has been charged to bring those arrested in connection with various farmers and herders clashes in the country to book with immediate effect.

The charge was made by the Chief Missioner of Nasrulahi-l Fatih Society (NASFAT), Imam Abdul-Azeez Onike in a statement issued on Tuesday in Lagos.

According to Onike, government must have revealed the identities of those arrested to Nigerians, with a view to dispelling the rumour and countering the narrative that the crimes were perpetrated only by Muslim.

He also added that the orgy of violent farmer/herdsmen clashes being experienced in some parts of Nigeria had nothing to do with religion as he blamed the unrest on Climate Change, increased urbanisation and lack of mutual trust among the populace.

“Why did every governor accept the National Livestock Transformation Policy of the government, but some of them kicked against the government genuine efforts to tame the frequent clashes between farmers and herdsmen through RUGA (Rural Urban Grazing Area). “Is it that the policy was not well communicated?

“There is, therefore, the need for government to always endeavour to communicate its policies clearly and not give room for mischief makers to perpetrate their evil intention,” said the NASFAT leader.
