There were indications yesterday that the Presidency is weighing four options on how to end killings by Fulani herdsmen and their constant clashes with farmers nationwide.

Also, the government has dug up a 1998 report by the Petroleum (Special) Trust Fund (PTF), which made far-reaching recommendations on herdsmen-farmers relationship.

It was learnt that the report has been sent to the 10-man committee headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, which was set up by the National Economic Council (NEC) on Thursday.
