The Nigerian leader, President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Nigerian Herdsmen do not carry AK-47, he said all they carry with them are just sticks and cutlasses to gather herbs for their cattle.

He said:

" The Nigerian cattle rearer will carry nothing more than sticks, sometimes machete to cut some trees"

According to Buhari, Herders attacking Nigerians, especially farmers with AK-47 rifles are not from Nigeria.

While insisting that the herders are not from Nigeria, the President further explained that Fulanis from Mauritania and Central Africa, look the same, adding that people often mistaken them for Nigerians.

He Said:

" You know the Fulani from Mauritania and Central Africa look the same, so they will think they are the Nigerian ones."
