Governor Ahmad Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has commended the Nigerian Army for being proactive and averting what would have degenerated to another farmers-herders clash in Kaduna state.
While reacting to the news of the killing of six children and a woman in some herders’ settlements in Kaura and Lere Local Government Areas of the state, governor el-Rufai thanked troops for prompt action in averting another possible violence.
The troops under the auspices of Operation Safe Haven, on Thursday, averted what would have been a bloody clash between some herders and farmers in Jema’a local government area.
The incident took place at Ungwan Marwa and Marmara communities in the local government area when cattle under the care of one Bayerajo Sule destroyed farms belonging to three farmers who are, Abigail Michael, Emmanuel Bulus and Jonathan Vincent.
The following individuals from both herders’ and farmers’ sides, instead of appealing for calm, are alleged to have incited the respective parties for a clash: Alhaji Abdullahi Idi, Gamji Alhaji, Apollos Auta and Matthew Moses.
They have however been arrested for further interrogation.Follow us on social media
