Garba Shehu, a Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity has blamed the repeated killings in parts of the country as an attempt by some individuals to create a war in Nigeria.
The spokesperson stated this on Wednesday in Abuja during his appearance on Channels Television’s breakfast programme.
He added that while the herdsmen might have a share in the killings, the nation is being attacked by some elements of the outlawed Islamic State who sneaked into the country.
“It is very clear that there is an attempt by some people, within and outside the country, to create a war.”
“There is intelligence available that clearly indicates that, yes, there are Fulani herds people who kill but this country also suffers from attacks by ISIS which has come into the country and they found a place in the cleavages that divide the country,” he said.
