The Benue state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has petitioned the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), over recent attacks by Fulani herdsmen.

The Executive Secretary of NHRC, Prof. Bem Angwe, who received the petition, promised to look into the matter.

Angwe said “it is sad that these killings and destruction of property have continued over time and a lot of people have lost their lives as a result of these numerous attacks.

“The Commission condemns in very strong terms the attacks that are today going on between pastoralists and farmers” and act concerns the entire human community hence we have commenced proactive steps within our mandate to protect the rights of Nigerians and other nationals living in Nigeria.”

The NHRC boss also called on the Federal Government to relocate the displace people of the affected communities.

Some Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) launched a protest, at the headquarters of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Abuja.
