Herdsmen threaten national stability, HURIWA warns



Human Rights Writers Association Of Nigeria (HURIWA) has expressed strong worry that going by the seeming conspiratorial silence and clear case of orchestrated ineptitude and inaction by the Federal Government of President Muhammadu Buhari to the dare devil activities and blood cuddling violence of armed Fulani herdsmen, Nigeria may be dangerously nearing the precipice of civil unrest.

Conversely, the group has warned the law enforcement agencies and the Armed Forces of Nigeria to rein in their errant commanders and management level officers to stop deploying armed security operatives to work in cohort with suspected armed Fulani herdsmen to create anarchy and civil unrest across Nigeria.

HURIWA alleged that some top commanders within the Division One of the Nigeria Army without any express permission or authorization from and by the office of the Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai had illegally deployed armed soldiers that invaded AWGU Enugu State community whereby 76 indigenous Igbo farmland owners were arrested and hauled into the Umuahia prison for allegedly resisting the plots and activities of some armed Fulani herdsmen to annex some of their ancestral farmlands for the purposes of illegal grazing of cattle.
