The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the Federal Government is working “silently” to put an end to the incessant clashes between Fulani herdsmen and farmers in some parts of the country.
He revealed that as part of measures towards addressing the menace, President Muhammadu Buhari has set up a panel of inquiry to investigate the recent herdsmen attacks.
Mohammed spoke in Abeokuta during a special prayer for the stability of the nation organised by the Sa’adatul Abadiyyah Organisation of Nigeria, which also turbaned him as its grand patron.
According to him, the effect of the Federal Government’s efforts would be felt within few weeks time.
The minister added that communal clashes are quite delicate and therefore required tact in finding lasting solution to them.
