The Edo state Governor. Adams Oshiomhole has warned Fulani herdsmen in the state against causing trouble.

He also set up committees that will go to various local governments in the state to resolve any crisis involving the herdsmen.

Oshiomhole said “Edo State Government will prosecute any rapist, any kidnapper, any rustler, who takes people’s cows. I think listening to all the stakeholders, whether royal fathers, farmers, Fulani herdsmen, everybody agreed that neither rape nor robbery, nor destruction of farms, nor rustling of cattle is acceptable.

“I think we are all committed to ensuring that we put an end to any of these practices so that all of us can continue to live together in peace, harmony and in security.”

The Edo Governor added that “In every conflict, you will find someone you can describe as the oppressor. Somebody might be blamed, but every conflict can be resolved if all the parties approach the solution with honest intentions and whatever agreement reached, we faithfully try to implement. That way, there will be peace.

 “Like the migrant Fulani representative said, 'you cannot decree a solution, but we can work towards a solution.’ And we have to use both carrot and stick approach.”

Oshiomhole also called on President Buhari to put proactive measures in place to curb clashes involving the Fulani herdsmen.
