Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is leading a nine-member committee to address the lingering crisis between farmers and herdsmen in the country.
The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, told State House correspondents after the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja.
Mr. Ganduje said the committee includes Governors of Zamfara, Kaduna, Adamawa, Benue, Taraba, Edo, Plateau, Ebonyi and Oyo States.
According to him, the committee would ensure that the perpetrators of the killings recently carried out by suspected herdsmen in some parts of the country, faced the wrath of the law.
“The committee has started its meeting right after this NEC meeting.
“The committee will work in accordance with commensurate commitment to ensure that all perpetrators of violence are brought to book,” Mr. Ganduje said.
