Buhari tells Taraba traditional rulers what to do to AK-47 wielding herdsmen | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that any Fulani man found with AK-47 should be charged to court immediately.

“Any Fulani man caught with AK-47 should be charged to court,” he told traditional rulers at the Taraba State Government House, Jalingo.

The President also lamented lack of oneness and inability of the people to live together in peace as brothers and sisters.

He said while traditional rulers in Nigeria were the main land lords, politicians like himself as the President and Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State were visitors who might not stay on their seats for ever.

He added, “You, the traditional rulers are going to remain on your stools till you die; Ishaku (the governor) and I may not last on our seats for long but you are going to be there till you die.

“Please go to your domains and initiate peace among your people. These killings will not help us.”

The Presidency announced on Monday that Buhari would be visiting states faced with violent attacks, starting with Taraba State.
