The Federal Government of Nigeria has indicated that most of the bandits and criminal herdsmen in Nigeria who terrorising the citizens are not Nigerians.
This bold claim was made by the Federal Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed when he spoke on the Channels Television programme, ‘Sunrise Daily’.
According to him, the Federal Government is working towards the amendment of ECOWAS Protocols on the free movement of humans and cattle within countries.
In his submission, he said;
“The ECOWAS Protocols allows trans-human movement between all the ECOWAS countries. That is why we are thinking of seriously reviewing the ECOWAS Protocols in that respect.
What we find out today is that a lot of criminalities have been introduced through the herdsmen and trans-human.”
