Let's Handle Herdsmen And Farmer's Violence With Open Mind - VP Osinbajo Says by BeeBeeOoh(m): 5:20am On Feb 13
Finding solutions to the perennial crises between herdsmen and farmers in several communities in Nigeria could only be achieved if the issue is approached with an open mind, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said.

The vice-president, who is leading a presidential committee to find solutions to the crises, said unless everyone concerned viewed all the issues in the matter objectively, it would be difficult to find lasting solutions to the problem.

Osinbajo, who spoke through Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi that represented him during a fact finding mission to Benue State Monday, commiserated with the government and people of the state, saying the New Year Day killings and subsequent ones stood condemned.

“We are here to tell you that we feel your pains because whatever happened to Benue may affect other ethnic groups in Nigeria. That is why in the national economic council meetings, the issue of farmers and herdsmen’s crises were discussed extensively after which an agreement was reached that a nine-man committee to be set up to proffer sustainable solutions to the crisis between the two bodies,” he said.

According to the vice-president, as part of the efforts to resolve the crises, a sub-committee was raised to visit the four most affected states including Benue, Taraba, Kaduna and Plateau to interact with the people and get their views.

“We have heard the presentation of the Benue people and shall also try to hear the presentation of the herdsmen so that sustainable resolutions could be found,” Umahi, his representative said, adding: “The herdsmen/farmers crises is not a Benue problem alone but a national problem, which requires national attention and solutions.”
He clarified the cattle colony policy of the federal government, saying that states could not be forced to give up their land except they buy into the programme.

Receiving the delegation, Governor Samuel Ortom thanked the committee for coming to the state.
He appreciated the committee for choosing the state as its first port of call and expressed optimism that the visit would afford its members opportunity to see things for themselves.

“We choose the path of peace in a civilized way to tackle the crisis even when Fulani herdsmen are killing our people like chickens,” he said, adding: “We remain committed to this cause in ensuring that we live in peace. We must not accept the total deceit that is going on in the country.”

Ortom said the anti-open grazing law started smoothly until Miyetti Allah issued a threat, which was actually carried out by them. “Therefore, l want to urge the committee to work assiduously to bring justice to Benue,” he stated.

The President-General, Mzoh U Tiv, Chief Edwin Ujege, who spoke on behalf of Benue socio-cultural groups, said the people of Benue State wanted peace and the protection of the lives and property in accordance with Nigerian constitution.
According to him, since the crisis started in 2011 in Benue State, well over 2,000 people have been killed including women and children with property worth N95 billion destroyed.
He said the federal government must uphold the anti-open grazing law enacted by the Benue State government.

Missing Policeman Found Dead

Meanwhile, a police officer who went missing in the state on Saturday has been found dead, locals told PREMIUM TIMES Monday.
The officer, whose identity has not yet been disclosed, was amongst the four riot police officers that went missing following an ambush on their patrol vehicle in Logo Local Government Area on Saturday.

The incident occurred in Tse Akpam village, near Azege town around 3:00 p.m. Saturday while the officers were returning from a peace-building mission in remote villages, Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni told PREMIUM TIMES.

The remains of the officer, said to be a sergeant, were found in the bush on Monday morning and had been deposited at a morgue in Anyiin, another town in Logo LGA, locals said.

Suspected Headsmen Kill 2 Civil Defence Men

Two operatives of the Nigeria Security Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) and one of the missing police riot policemen missing since Sunday in Logo have been confirmed killed.

The two NSCDC operatives were killed during an attack on their patrol team at Awange after Kasseyol Village in Guma Local Government area of Benue State.
The Public Relations Officer of the Benue State Command of the NSCDC, Mr Adakole John Peter, confirmed the incident, saying both men were killed when herdsmen stormed the village about 5pm Monday and attacked their team.

Let appointments of our security chiefs be done with open mind first, then let 'dances' in all regions be eqaul.

Nigerian has the right of inference and reactions while your government has the right of actions


A situation where police called a governor 'drowning' without apologies, called 'Ruwandan styled' genocide mere community clash, and presidency now crowned it up by saying, 'learn how to live with your killers', leaves a lot to be desired of your government sir.

Maybe you were to busy to read about arrest of those Benue guys who picked up arms in self defense while Herds move about with similar arms without questions, vandalizing crop farms without second thought.
The statute/symbol of justice was veiled holding equity scale.


From your church mind sir, what would have been your thought if you were not of this government, I mean unbiased thought.

You and I knows you are playing politics with the truth, necessary of a loyal VP, but the bulk is yours to deal with.

But you couldn't handle IPOB's legitimate campaign with open mind. They had to be crushed immediately, by fire by force. A group that didn't kill anyone.

It's no longer to pray for the fulani terrorists. You are now asking us to view their carnage with an open mind.

Continue.

VP ON IPOB:
"IPOB is a threat to Nigeria's unity and we the Federal Executive must crush them and their activities by fire by thunder. So we beg true Nigerians to provide our security agencies with IPOB's information/plans/activities for proper action to be taken immediately!"

VP ON FULANI HERDSMEN KILLINGS:
"I plead to Nigerians, Don’t Retaliate Fulani Herdsmen Killings, Pray For Them Instead; just as we the Federal Executive are praying hard now." ~ (VP Prof. Yemi Osinbajo)

The Myetti group say they don't like the law passed in Benue even though they are migrants. The VP and security agents are calling for negotiations and are saying that the law should be repealed to suit the demands of non elected migrants and this is coming after hundreds of civilians and even security personnel have lost their lives and tens of thousands displaced and are now residing as refugees.

Tomorrow these migrants will say they dont like the democratically elected and constitutionally sworn in Governor and would threaten fire and brimstone if he is not removed. I hope the VP will still negotiate with them.

A stitch in time saves Nine......

Let the negotiations and prayers continue. wink

Same way you handled IPOB and Niger Delta militants with open mind? Bunch of hypocrites!


Anyway, I think Nigerians are as open about this far and beyond how open they have been on several issues,


No to Grazing Reserves/Colonies
Yes to Ranching.


Unless you want them to see/do it your way, in which case the case for open-mindedness is DOA!

The reminds me of the topic: Mapping of conflict in my Peace, conflict resolution and management course.

Resolution has to be based on the cattle being raised in a fixed location, cattle farming is a private enterprise just like any other agro venture and shouldn't be made as if the herdsmen are doing Nigerians a favour.

Really


Osinbajo should learn to be circumspect in his words regarding these Fulani militia terrorists herdsmen cos he's recently being seen as sucking up to those evil Fulani leaders.

And we await the committee proposed solutions since its obvious the kite of cow colonies has failed to fly in the south and middle belt.
