Buhari calls for calm as 86 die in farmer, herder clashes

Presisdent Muhammadu Buhari has urged for calm from the citizens of Palteau state after 86 people were said to have died as a result of clashes between herdsmen and farmers over the weekend.

The president made the remark on Sunday through his official twitter account, adding that “no efforts will be spared to bring the perpetrators to justice, and
prevent a recurrence.”

According to Reuters calculations, the violence in Nigeria’s diverse Middle Belt states has now killed more people than the Islamist insurgency in Nigeria’s northeast, according to Reuters calculations.

Despite his call for calm, Speaker of the House of Representative, Yakubu Dogara decried the state of Nigeria’s law enforcement systems.

“This further strengthens my constant call for an overhaul of the entire security apparatus of this country,” Dogara said in a statement on Sunday.
