Haruna Tukur, Abuja- Following the tension generated by the demand for the eviction of Fulani Herdsmen in Southern Nigeria, the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El Rufai has asked his fellow governors to step in and control the situation from descending into anarchy.
El-Rufai made this known in a broadcast , where he urged the leaders to exercise firm action, by engaging with their people and preventing opportunists from taking advantage of the worrisome situation, reminding his fellow governors and all those in position of authority, not to allow, by whatever means the reign of anarchy, where fear could create a tragic momentum of violence, blurring the lines between victims and perpetrators and complicating a difficult moment.
The governor also called on the National Assembly to quickly look into issues affecting the constitutional amendments that will ensure State and
community policing which he described as the ultimate panacea for effective law enforcement nationwide.
He called on Governments and security
agencies to immediately rein in all non-state actors, tackle hateful rhetoric, and protect all communities, while also asking that those who engage in criminal acts to be arrested and prosecuted without regard to their ethnic
or religious persuasion.
