Fulani Herdsmen Terrorising Nigeria Are Not Nigerians – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the Fulani herdsmen wielding sophisticated weapons are from other parts of West Africa.

According to Buhari, the Nigerian Fulani only bears a stick and sometimes a matchet to be used in cutting trees and grasses for the cattle.

Buhari, who spoke in an interview with Arise TV on Thursday, added that grazing routes and reserves remain the solution to the ongoing conflict between herders and farmers across the country.

The interview was the first Buhari has granted since he was sworn-in for a second term in office in 2019.
