Herdsmen Attack: Osinbajo Meets With Sanusi, Others

Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has met with the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Musdafa, elder statesman, Mallam Ahmed Joda and other heads of Fulani communities behind closed doors on Monday.

In a statement by the VP’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, the meeting was a continuation of the December 5, 2017 visit made by Osinbajo to Adamawa, over the clashes in the state.

Disclosed that the meeting was meant to ensure consultation between stakeholders, in order to find a lasting solution to the farmers-herders clash in parts of the country.

Akande quoted Osinbajo as saying: “There is nothing much more important now in showing our leadership beyond preventing tragedy and destruction of everything we have built as a nation. The entire Nigeria enterprise is bigger than other interests. The overall objective is ensuring that our nation is not enveloped by another crisis.

“We now have an opportunity to do something. We have the opportunity to resolve the issues and to build a nation, where we and our children can live in peace.”

Osinbajo would is expected to meet with the Batta, Bachama and other groups from Adamawa, as well as  hold meetings with stakeholders from other conflict-prone states.
