The Civil Liberties Organization (CLO) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of sponsoring the attacks of Fulani herdsmen in the country.

The comment was made on the group’s behalf by Board of Governors member, Alhaji Danjuma Gambo.

“The development that a herdsman was arrested by Police last Monday is not the first. Exactly four months ago, the same Fulani herdsmen attacked Nimbo, killing about 13 persons,” Gambo said according to Vanguard.

“This is apart from burning of houses,raping of women and children and destruction of farmlands. The five suspects arrested in the Nimbo massacre made confessional statements to the killings in Nimbo. Will the investigation take eternity when the same police said the suspects have made confessional statements?

“The Inspector General of Police should account for the five suspects and tell us where they are four months after the investigation. Police in Enugu must tell us how the suspect got the sophisticated AK-47 rifle and also prosecute him to bring closure to these cases. Justice should be seen to be done. Buhari has never condemned herdsmen activities and his body language suggests that he sponsors their activities,” he added.
