President Buhari has once again linked the increasing herdsmen crisis to hit-men trained by deceased Libyan leader, Muammar Ghadaffi. While speaking to US President Donald Trump, yesterday April 30th.
President Buhari said;
”The problem of herders in Nigeria is a very long historical thing. The Nigerian herders don’t carry anything more than a stick and occasionally a matchet to cut down foliage and give it to their animals, these ones are carrying AK-47. So, people should not underrate what happened in Libya”.
He further said 43 years of Ghaddaffi, people were recruited from the Sahel and trained to shoot and kill. With the demise of Ghaddaffi they moved to other countries and region and carried the experience with them”.
Herdsmen crisis in Nigeria has seen so many people lost their lives and many more displaced.
