The Presidency has said that anyone found bearing arms unlawfully anywhere in the country must be arrested and prosecuted.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said on Tuesday, that the position of the president on the farmers and herders clash is that people unlawfully bearing arms must be made to face the law.
Adesina spoke during a Channels Television Programme, tagged, Politics Today.
He said, “If the governor would say that he hasn’t heard the president speak on that matter, that’s what he should make clear. It is not that the president hasn’t spoken, because a number of times, the president has spoken on that issue.
“His position has always been the same. Anybody that carries arms unlawfully should be arrested and prosecuted.
“The president has said it countless times and that is the position. Whoever he is, wherever he comes from, criminality is criminality; anybody bearing arms unlawfully must be arrested and prosecuted.”
