ICC News: Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari reaffirmed his commitment to stopping the radical Fulani herder militias from attacking more communities across Nigeria, setting villages ablaze, and murdering hundreds of civilians. The latest assaults in the violent crisis that has lasted more than 15 years occurred as far north as Zamfara State, according to the BBC, and as far south as Enugu State last week. Islamist Fulani gangs continue to ravage farming villages spreading out from the central “Middle-Belt” region where majority-Christian communities represent their primary targets for destruction and territorial takeover.

5/4/16 Nigeria (AllAfrica) – Against the background of reports of continued attacks on communities across the country by armed herdsmen, President Muhammadu Buhari late Monday in Abuja restated his administration’s resolve to deal decisively and expeditiously with the matter.

Speaking at a meeting with members of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, President Buhari confirmed that heads of national security agencies have been ordered to take all necessary action to apprehend and expose those behind the heinous attacks.

The Bishops were led by Most Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, the Archbishop of Jos.

“We are determined to secure all Nigerians and I have told the Inspector-General of Police and other security agencies, in very strong terms, to deal decisively with the attackers,” the president said, according to a statement signed by spokesperson, Femi Adesina.
