Herdsmen, farmers’ conflict: EU expresses alarm over killings in Nigeria

• Wants perpetrators brought to justice

Aidoghie Paulinus, Abuja

The European Union’s Heads of Mission in Nigeria has said it is alarmed over the escalating and disturbing killings in the clashes between herdsmen and farmers in Nigeria.

In a statement issued yesterday in Abuja, the Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria and the Economic Community of West African States, said as a first step, the perpetrators of violence must be brought to justice. 

It called on the Federal Government and all stakeholders to engage decisively in order to promote a constructive dialogue. This, the EU said, will help to find viable solutions and sustainable economic policies that would permit all to live in peace, irrespective of their ethnicity or religion.

The statement read in part: “The EU Heads of Mission are alarmed by the escalating and disturbing killings in the conflict between herdsmen and farmers in Nigeria. 

“While we welcome the visit of President Buhari to affected states, we encourage the government and all stakeholders to engage decisively in order to promote a constructive dialogue with the aim of finding viable solutions and sustainable economic policies that would permit all to live in peace, whatever their ethnicity or religion.”

It further confirmed its full support to the government and people of Nigeria in the fight against violence in all its forms. The EU expressed its condolences and sympathy to the families of those killed and injured.

    The world should not see the killings going on in Nigeria as a conflict between herdsmen and farmers but as an organized genocide by the nigerian president and his kinsmen he appointed as security chiefs . The president and his service chiefs are fulanis . With the backing of the federal government given to the herdsmen they are emboldened hence the killings are going on unimpeded.
    Nigerians too should take greater part of the blame for voting the evil fulani man into power inspite of several warnings.

    Was it really a conflict between farmers and herdsmen or terrorists’ killings by the fourth most deadliest terrorists in the world, Fulani’s herdsmen deadliest terrorism in NIGERIA?

    EU officials should not politicize their statement for their attempts of political correctness!

    Fulani’s herdsmen deadliest terrorists senseless, heartless, mindless and unreasonable killings has been going on unchecked in parts of NIGERIA, especialy since 2015 July till now, and Buhari’s Government is more sentimental about it, while NIGERIANS are senselessly being killed by the politically and religiously suponsored Fulani’s herdsmen deadliest terrorists in NIGERIA!

    EU officials should engage their international voices on the unaviodable need of restructuring NIGERIA with all-inclusive democractic transparency and honesty, of social justice and fairness for all and sundry, irrespective of tribes and cultures!

    All these comments though better than none will not bend the primitive and stone age Fulani herdsmen. They’re insular to good conscience and civility and the modern way of cohabiting with other ethnic groups. The only language they understand is violent resistance beyond their own expectation.
