ENUGU- The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Mohammad Sa’ad Abubakar III has stated that real herdsmen who own cows don’t kill but only criminals that parade as herdsmen.
The Sultan also disclosed that the Igbo were subject to attacks during crises periods because they are visible entrepreneurs located in all nooks and cranny.
He therefore challenged security agents to find out sources of sophisticated arms being brandied by criminals in the guise of herdsmen.
The Muslim leader spoke at a grand reception organized in his honour at Nsukka, Tuesday, where he was welcomed home 39 years after he leaving the university town as a young soldier.
Sultan said: “I want to say that nobody in the north aims to kill any Igbo because he is an Igboman. They are killed because they are the industrious ones found in everywhere and in every village but nobody plans or sends people to kill the Igbos.
