President Muhammadu Buhari has again appealed to Nigerians to restrain from any form of reprisal attacks. President Buhari stated this on Tuesday in Nasarawa state when he paid a one-day working visit to the state.

President Buhari’s appeal is coming on the back of the reported clashes between suspected herdsmen and farmers in parts of Northern Nigeria including Benue, Nasarawa and Taraba states.

According to the president, the federal government will not tolerate the attacks by the suspected herdsmen, and is working to ensure that peace and stability return to the affected areas.

President Buhari said; “I also want to assure the people of the North Central and indeed all Nigerians that the Federal Government is working day and night to ensure peace and stability. We have deployed additional resources to all affected areas to maintain law and order.

“The attacks by suspected herdsmen and other bandits will not be tolerated. I appeal to all Nigerians to restrain from reprisal attacks.”

While expressing his condolence to victims of the attacks, the president disclosed that he has ordered the security agencies to arrest all persons who are found with all forms of illegal arms.

The security agencies I have sent them instruction to arrest and prosecute any and all person found with illegal arms.

“I will like once again to express my condolence and sympathy to all affected victims of this barbaric act”, President Buhari said.
