Clash: Kwara Govt Appeals To Warring Parties To Remain Calm


By Usman Aliyu
Ilorin –   The Kwara Government on Monday  appealed to   aggrieved parties in the clash between herdsmen and farmers in the state to remain calm and refrain from resorting to self help.

The Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Isiaka Gold,  made the appeal in a statement  in Ilorin on Monday.

The government condemned the clash and vowed that those involved in the  incident would be apprehended and  made to face the law.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  recalls that no fewer than four  persons  died  recently  in the clash between some Fulani herdsmen and members of  Yashikira community in Baruten Local Government  Area  of the state.

Members of the community allegedly killed  the three herdsmen in retaliation for the death of a man  whose corpse was found on his farmland.

But Gold said  government was backing the state police command and other security agencies to apprehend and prosecute the perpetrators.

“The state government remains committed to protecting lives and property in line with the rule of law.

“Government will not hesitate to prosecute anyone or group found to have instigated or taken part in any act of violence,’’  he said.

He called on all  residents of the state to remain calm and go about their lawful activities.
