Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said his visit to the state was to find a lasting solution to the unending killings following the clashes between the locals and Fulani herdsmen in Numan and its environs.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo also identified the long-standing animosity between Bachama and Fulani communities as the cause of the recent crisis in Numan. He made the assertion when he paid a courtesy call on the Hama Batchama, Stephen Irimiya, in his palace in Numan town.
He described the recent killings in Numan as needless, adding that the problem of the common man was how to sustain livelihood and not to kill. According to him, the problem is being caused by humans and not spirits and therefore, requires humans to resolve it.
The vice president commended the traditional Council for cooperating with the government to bring a lasting solution to the crisis. Earlier, the paramount ruler had commended the Federal Government for its intervention to restore peace in the area.
