Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has sent a message to President Buhari seeking for the Army to support Nigerians in flushing out killer herdsmen.
Soyinka made this known while urging President Buhari to come publicly and renounce the activities of herdsmen killing people across the country.
Wole Soyinka stated this during an interview with BBC Pidgin.
Speaking on what Nigerians expect from Buhari, he said, “Address the nation in a very stern, unambiguous terms.
“Say openly, yes, I know I am the matron of the cattle rearers association, etc.
“I am a cattle rancher myself, it is a business and I run my business on business terms.
“I do not run my business by killing people. I do not run my business by raping, displacing, torturing and I don’t run my business by occupying land that does not belong to me.
“Whatever comes to you for illegal occupation or for trespassing in other people’s property is your business.
“And I am ordering the Army, I am ordering all the security forces to back citizens’ efforts in flushing you people out.
“I expect nothing less even at this stage.
“This is the language I expect from President Buhari and as long as that language does not come, I must consider him quite complacent with what is going on because the buck stops at his desk.”
There has been a crisis across the country between herdsmen and farmers which has led to the loss of lives and properties.
This causes the launching of the Eastern Security Network and just recently, they chased Fulani herdsmen out of the Isiukwuato area of Abia State.
