Pick Of The Day : If the three options we are proposing fail, we are ready to defend ourselves .


 “We agreed at the Security Council Meeting that we will not allow herdsmen to carry arms. That is a clear directive from Abuja. If you see herdsmen with AK47, report them to the police early enough so that they can be picked up.
Fulani herdsmen used to be known with their “long sticks and daggers” which they wielded to protect their cows.
What we intend to do is to send the Fulani that are living with us here to go and meet with the Fulani in that area with a view to finding out whether they are coming in peace or otherwise.
More importantly, we want the Fulani in this committee to tell the members of this committee if their people are nursing any grievance in whatever form.
But these Fulani herdsmen that carry AK47 riffles are worrisome. We don’t want what happened in Enugu to happen here. But if the three options we are proposing fail, we are ready to defend ourselves.”
