FARMERS/HERDER:Osinbajo In Numan Over Violence


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo visited Numan, in Adamawa State, were he condoled the people of the area over the recent spate of violence which led to several deaths.

Attacks by opposing sides in the area have led to dozens of deaths in the last two weeks.

On Monday, fresh fighting erupted in a predominantly Bachama community, in what locals said was a reprisal by their Fulani neighbours whose relatives had earlier been killed.

Residents said homes were set alight as locals were killed as some fled into the bush early Monday.

He was received by Governor Jibrilla Bindow, after which he proceeded to the palace of the Lamido Adamawa, Barkindo Mustapha.

The Vice President held a closed-door meeting with Mustapha and other chiefs across the state. Osinbanjo was also in Numan, where he was received by the chief of the community, the Hamma Bachama, Honest Irmiya, in his palace.
