Defence Headquarters Vows To Tackle Killer Herdsmen

The Defence Headquarters, on Saturday, assured
Nigerians the troops of the Nigerian Army and other services deployed in Exercise Ayem Akpatuma, “ Cat Race”, were on the alert to arrest the killer herdsmen ravaging Plateau, Kogi and other surrounding states.
Brig.-Gen. John Agim, Director, Defence Information, stated this in a text message to newsmen, while reacting to a question on whether fresh deployments had been made to tackle the latest rounds of herdsmen’s violence in the North-Central and Middle Belt states.
It should be noted that the herdsmen, during the week, attacked the Miango and Mararaba Dare communities near Jos, Plateau State, killing at least 25 persons. The army had said the herdsmen also shot dead two soldiers during a gun battle at Rafiki village.
The military’s spokesman, said on Saturday that the troops were on top of the situation.
“Exercise Cat Race will, by the grace of God, contain the herdsmen’s killings in these states,” Agim said.
