The Emir of Taraba, Abbas Tafida, has given a 30-day ultimatum to killer Fulani herdsmen terrorising residents of the state to leave the forests before the state will apply the use of force.
The Emir, who issued the Ultimatum on Tuesday after Eid prayer, according to Channels TV reports also, pointed out that it became necessary, especially as it relates to the recent killings, kidnapping and attacks suspected to be carried out by herders.
The monarch , who spoke in his local dialect, claimed that the axt is being perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen that they welcome into their communities.
He urged security operatives to fish out the bad eggs among the herdsmen.
“Our Fulani herdsmen in the forests, you came into this state and we accepted you, why then will you be coming to towns and villages to kidnap residents, even up to the extent of raping our women?
“Because of this unending menace, every Fulani herdsman in this state have been given thirty days ultimatum to vacate the forests.
“We are tired of having sleepless nights and the hunger alone in the land is enormous and we will not allow it to continue,” the Emir said.
As Nigeria continue to battle Boko-Haram and other terrorist group in the country, Taraba State have been one of the states mostly affected and faced with the danger of the crimes committed by bandits and herdsmen.
