President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the renewed communal clash in Taraba State was disturbing.
President Buhari in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said that violence was never the option to settle disputes.
He explained that disagreements over lands or fishing ponds shouldn’t be allowed to degenerate into violence and destruction of life and prosperity.
The President said that violence has never settled any problem, but on the contrary, it makes a bad situation worse and sow the seeds of future conflicts.
While sympathising with the victims and their families, President Buhari appealed to leaders at all levels in Taraba State to seize the initiative in order to forestall outbreaks of deadly violence by thugs.
