Abuja - There is no evidence that the herdsmen killing and wreaking havoc across the country are foreigners, the Nigeria Immigration Service has said.
The NIS Public Relations Officer, Ekpedeme King, said the immigration service doesn’t profile immigrants based on their ethnicity.
He said it is not certain whether the herdsmen are Nigerians or not because nobody has produced them for profiling.
"So far, what we have heard is speculation that they are from foreign countries, but no one has profiled them to know their identities, but it is not impossible that they could be foreigners.”
The herdsmen recently invaded some communities in Enugu state in the early hours of Monday, killing over 30 people and destroying properties.
