In other news, WITHIN NIGERIA reported that the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has begged Fulani herdsmen not to carry AK-47 rifles.
In what seems to be a reversal to his former comments, Mohammed made the appeal on Wednesday. He was speaking at the launch of the 2020/2021 annual livestock vaccination campaign held at the Galambi Cattle Ranch, Bauchi.
The Bauchi governor said, “What I will do, I will not say it here, but I will do everything possible to make sure I protect you and lend support to you because I know you mean well.
“Through time and history, you have been seen to be cajoled, and lampooned but you remained humane, you remained simple, you don’t show so much aggression and of course, that humility is always what we recognized and this is what a character that should always try to show.
