President Mohammadu Buhari at the weekend said the clashes between herders and farmers around the country are largely due to unrest in neighbouring Libya and Mali from where weapons and militants have found their way into the country.
The President who was represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the graduation ceremony of Senior Executive Course (SEC) 38 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, near Jos, said there was evidence to show the infiltration of militants into the folds of Nigerian herders, adding that militants running away with light and heavy arms from the troubled countries had settled among Nigerian herders but warned that criminal violence in whatever form would not be tolerated.
The National Institute, which was meant to graduate 67 participants during the ceremony, announced that one of its participants, Hajia Maimuna Abdullahi, a permanent secretary from Niger State, had died on Thursday.
The Acting Director-General of the Institute, Jonathan Juma who disclosed this at the graduation ceremony, said that the deceased would be awarded the ‘mni’ posthumously.
He said the theme of SEC 38, which is Strengthening Institutional Mechanism for Poverty Reduction and Inclusive Development in Nigeria, gave the participants opportunity to undertake study tours to 12 states in Nigeria and six countries within and outside Africa.
