Nigerians React To Buhari’s Statement Blaming Gadaffi For Herdsmen Killings

by

Nigerians on social media have blasted President Muhammadu Buhari for blaming activities of herdsmen in Nigeria on the late Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi.

Recall that while speaking with the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace – Justin Welby in London, on Wednesday, Buhari had said the killer herdsmen were trained and armed by Gaddafi.

He had said, “The problem is even older than us. It has always been there but now made worse by the influx of armed gunmen from the Sahel region into different parts of the West African sub-region. These gunmen were trained and armed by Muammar Gadaffi of Libya. When he was killed, the gunmen escaped with their arms.

“We encountered some of them fighting with Boko Haram. Herdsmen that we used to know carried only sticks and maybe a cutlass to clear the way, but these ones now carry sophisticated weapons. The problem is not religious, but sociological and economic. But we are working on solutions.”

Some Nigerians on Twitter, have, however, taken on the President, saying his reason was not weighty.

They wondered why the government would blame a dead man for herdsmen killings.

Here are some comments gathered by Nigerianmonitor from Twitter:
