The Nigerian Cattle Herder Doesn’t Carry Anything More Than A Stick: Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says the Nigerian cattle herder doesn’t carry anything more than a stick, save when they need something to cut grass. This mirrors the same thing he told US President Donald Trump during a visit in April when he 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.”

According to Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Buhari said this while speaking at an interactive session with stakeholders in Plateau State in the aftermath of the attacks in three local government areas of the state that left more than 100 people dead. Shehu also said the President directed security chiefs in the country to remain vigilant and ensure the protection of lives and property in the country.

He also said the President urged traditional and community leaders to complement efforts of government by persuading their constituencies to tolerate one another for peace and unity in the country. Shehu said Buhari, who was accompanied to the meeting by Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State and his counterparts from Kebbi and Niger, condoled with the affected families, the government and people of the state, and wished those injured a speedy recovery.
