We’re stabilising herdsmen attacks, Buhari assures Trump

President Muhammadu Buhari has assured U.S. President Donald Trump that his administration is stabilising the attacks by herdsmen across the country.

Buhari, who gave the assurance during his meeting with Trump at the White House, said Nigerians were concerned about the resort to arms by some herdsmen.

The Nigerian president described the situation as alien to the age-long peaceful coexistence between herders and farmers across the country.

Buhari said, “The problem of cattle herders is a very long historical problem. What is of a concern is that before now the Nigerian herders are known to carry sticks and machetes and cut follies for their animals but these ones are carrying AK 47.

“So, I don’t think we should underrate Libya, 43 years of Gaddafi people were being recruited from the Sahel and people were being killed.

“With the demise, they moved from their country and their region with their training and their weapons and that is what aggravated the situation.

“We are doing our best to make ensure we stop the cross-border movement and so on. It will take time. We are Stabilising the situation in Nigeria.”

He explained that Nigeria was happy with the U.S. trying to see the end of ISIS, saying this has helped Nigeria a lot because the Boko Haram in Nigeria had one time made a statement that they belonged to ISIS.

“Now that ISIS has been virtually dealt with,  we are very happy with that,” he said.
