Buhari dropped the hint in a statement made available to newsmen by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu in his reaction to the crisis in Plateau State at the weekend.

The president who lamented the perennial clashes between the farmers and the herdsmen said the adversarial relationship was being stoked up by economic, political and geographical factors.

According to him: “We know that a number of geographical and economic factors are contributing to the longstanding herdsmen/farmers clashes.

“But we also know that politicians are taking advantage of the situation. This is incredibly unfortunate.

“Nigerians affected by the herdsmen/farmers’ clashes must always allow due process to take its course rather than taking matters into their own hands.”
