Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Senatorial District, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to stop protecting Fulani herdsmen, saying their murderous attacks on farmers in various parts of the country have eroded the integrity of the government.
Mr. Sani’s offered his advice in a press statement issued on Sunday. Titled “Herdsmen and Helmsmen”, the statement condemned the repeated horrors visited on farmers by the herdsmen.
”The mass murder in Southern Kaduna, Taraba, Benue, Numan and other affected places are unpardonable and despicable crimes. These killings and bloodletting threaten the peace, stability and unity of our country,” Mr. Sani said.
He urged helmsmen, an allusion to political leaders, to urgently confront the herdsmen, adding that repeated condolences will not end the bloodshed.
