Sultan of Sokoto calls on the federal government to prosecute killer herdsmen

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 2-Day Annual Pan-Northern Groups Summit on Security, Socio-economic and political development in Kaduna, the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III said killer herdsmen do not represent the fulanity community while calling on the federal government to prosecute them. He said:

“There are very terrible herdsmen who kill. But they are acting on their own, they are criminals and they must be treated as criminals. Therefore the Federal Government should prosecute them. “It is disheartening to hear when people say Fulani herdsmen want to Islamise Nigeria and that is why they are killing. Any Fulani herdsman who kills is not acting the script of Fulani community in Nigeria, neither is he working for the Muslim community”.
