A stakeholder and member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of Nigeria's leading political party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Buba Galadima, has urged the media to shun blaming Fulani herdsmen for attacks in various communities in Nigeria.
Yobe State-born politician Galadima said on Monday 29 August 2016:
"It is common among communities for Fulanis and farmers to have disagreements over grazing, however, they always settle the issues amicably.
"Also, there are always miscreants in every community therefore, not all the cases of alleged herdsmen killings are actually true. Nigerians must know that you can never see anyone rearing over 200 cattles, leaving them to go and attack a village."
