05 July 2016, 12:31

Abuja - The Njiya-Goron community of Adamawa state are now threatening to wage war against the Fulani herdsmen after feeling that they have no other option but to fight back, following a series of attacks by the herdsmen, Naij reports.

The chairman of the community, Manasah Nayangom said the continuous attacks on its people by the herdsmen has now forced its members to fight back as the police have failed to maintain peace in the region.

He added that 65 lives have been lost so far in the attacks with N2 billion in damages caused by vandalism.

"The hunting and killing of our people at will by these blood suckers must stop, otherwise we have no choice than to take drastic measures to defend ourselves, for it appears the government does not care whether we are dead or alive," Nayangom said.

News24 Nigeria reported that Fulani herdsmen yesterday reached an agreement with the Olomu Traditional Council in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, to vacate the kingdom for an interim period of two weeks beginning from June 25, to July 9.

The agreement was reached to enable the kingdom work out modalities for re-entrance in order to avoid further clashes.
