Northern leaders will support any action to end bloodbath by Herdsmen – Sultan

Amidst the tensed security chal­lenges occa­sioned by activities of the herdsmen across the country, the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Sa’ad Abubakar 111 has called for peace and un­derstanding for a united northern region where everyone can work to­gether for the benefit of the people irrespective of their faith and ethnic background. He made the pledge on behalf of the traditional and reli­gious leaders from the North.
The concerned eminent monarch lead­er made the call yester­day at a joint meeting of governors and tradi­tional rulers of the 19 Northern states held at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim House, Kaduna.
Worried at the con­tinued bloodbath in various states of the re­gion with telling effects on peace and unity, he lamented the lingering crisis in the North rang­ing from cattle rustling, clashes to herdsmen and farmers which he de­scribed as “worrisome, sad and disturbing”.
To this end, the Sul­tan advised that for the spate of violence plagu­ing the northern region to come to an end, those that have been respon­sible for such crisis must be punished.
According to him, the continued disturbing trend is simply because offenders who are car­rying their dastardly act with impunity have not been punished in the past.
