Arrest Herdsmen, Not Jonathan; CAN Tells Buhari



President Muhammadu Buhari should arrest “marauding and murderous” herdsmen and not former President Goodluck Jonathan, the northern branch of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has said.

There had been unconfirmed reports that Jonathan would be arrested over allegations of corruption, particularly the management of funds meant for the war against insurgency in the north-east.
The funds were allegedly diverted to fund Jonathan’s unsuccessful re-election bid in 2015.
In a statement on Wednesday by northern CAN, signed by its PRO, John Joseph Hayab, the body said Nigeria would boil if Jonathan was arrested.
It urged Buhari to focus on arresting the herdsmen menace, erratic power supply and the weak economy,
