Fulani herders protest killing of members in South

Fulani herders have raised the alarm that their members are being killed unjustly in some parts of the South of the country.

The Chairman of the Kogi State chapter of the Fulani group, Adamu Tukur, raised the alarm during a protest at the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) fRIday in Abuja.

Demanding justice, he said if their members committed any offence, they should be arrested rather than killing them.

Tukur appealed to the commission and the government to come to their defence and ensure they got justice.

Responding, the Executive Secretary of NHRC, Tony Ojukwu, said it was disheartening that Nigerians could not live with their fellow Nigerians in peace even when the law permitted such.

While appreciating the members for bringing their complaints to the commission rather than taking the law into their hands, he promised to ensure that culprits were arrested and prosecuted.
