Police To Wage War Against Fulani Herdsmen

The Police have declared war on Fulani herdsmen perpetrating unending attacks on farmers with unlicensed firearms. The force said it does not issue gun licences to herdsmen and would henceforth clamp down on any one of them found to be in possession of firearms without Police licence.

This move has become imperative following allegations that Fulani herdsmen use dangerous weapons such as AK47 and other guns whenever they are embroiled in violent clashes with farmers over grazing areas for their cattle.
The Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, said that the police do not issue firearms licence to unqualified persons and encourage Nigerians to provide information on illegal arms across the country.Click Here to Download Our Android App
