President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday directed that any Fulani man found in possession of AK-47 rifles should be charged to court. The president said this in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital during a visit to the state to commiserate with people that lost loved ones in the wake of violence that engulfed the area recently.
“Any Fulani man caught with AK-47 should be charged to court.”
He spoke at Government House, Jalingo, and lamented lack of oneness and inability of the people to live together in peace as brothers and sisters. He said his reason to visit Taraba State first was informed by the large-scale killing at Mambila Plateau which he described as more than the number of those killed in Benue and Zamfara states.
He said he will soon embark on the same visit to Zamfara and Benue states, also to condole with those who lost their loved ones.
The president called on the traditional rulers in the state to go to their chiefdoms and preach peace among their subjects for peaceful coexistence among their people.READ MORE
