Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka says government should reach consensus with parties involved in herders/farmers clashes across the country in a way that is fair to all parties.
He said this during an interview with BBC Pidgin on Saturday.
Soyinka criticised the government’s handling of the situation and accused some security operatives of taking sides.
He said: “I’m glad that governors are already dialoguing with groups like Miyetti Allah (cattle breeders).”
“I’m also glad that they’re already discussing agreeing to obey the rules and that other groups are already liaising. I think we need to ensure they reach a consensus that will be fair to all parties.”
