President Muhammadu Buhari and Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby

Following the fresh attack of the Fulani herdsmen on Benue communities in Logo and Ukum local government areas on Tuesday night in which 10 persons were killed and left many injured, President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to provide lasting solutions to the menace.

Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President noted that the attack on the farmers was not new but was compounded by the influx of armed men from the Sahel region into West Africa.

Buhari who is currently in London made the statement while receiving Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, adding that the problem should not been seen from the point of view of religion, saying it was sociological and economic.

“The problem is older than us. It has always been there, but now made worse by the influx of gunmen from the Sahel region into different parts of the West African sub-region.

“These gunmen were trained and armed by Muammar Gadaffi of Libya. When he was killed, the gunmen escaped with their arms.

“Herdsmen that we used to know carried only sticks and maybe a cutlass to clear the way, but these ones now carry sophisticated weapons. The problem is not religious, but sociological and economic. But we are working on solutions.”

Lamenting that the “irresponsible politics” has been brought into the farmers/herders’ crisis, assuring his guest that enduring solutions would be found, while justice would be done to all concerned.
