Buhari while addressing the massive crowd at the Ekiti APC mega rally, said Ekiti people should be wary of the blackmail against his person regarding the herdsmen and farmers clash.
Hundreds of people have been killed in several states due the violence, and largely despite security presence. Some of the states most affected by the violence are Plateau, Benue and Taraba.
“They blackmailing me, saying I have not done anything about the farmers/Fulani herdsmen clashes because I am a Fulani man,” the president said.
“But this is a cheap blackmail. We are doing everything to curtail the situation, and provide a lasting solution to the problem.”
