The Sarkin-Hausawa of Edo, Alh. Adamu Isa, has debunked the alleged killings of some herdsmen in Benin published in a video circulating on social media.
Isa made the disclosure yesterday in Benin, shortly after a closed-door meeting with the State governor, Godwin Obaseki, at the Government House, Benin,vthe State capital.
He said that herders and farmers’ clashes were an old issue in the state, and we have promised to cooperate with the present administration to make sure it was brought down to the barest minimum.
Isa assured that he would do everything, within his power, to assist the government in reducing the current security challenges facing the state.
In his remarks, Gov. Obaseki said that from all the facts he had gathered, all he was seeing was just a deliberate attempt by misguided people, who were willing to play politics with security in Nigeria.
The governor assured that a command and control center had been created to allow members of the Arewa community, with useful information to volunteer such anonymously.
