It is a mistake to say Government is talking to Bandits…President’s Aide

The President ’s aide , however, said , “ It is a mistake to say the Nigerian government is talking to bandits .

The Miyetti Allah group is like the Ohanaeze and Afenifere . It is a socio -cultural group . There are criminals within the Yoruba race and you cannot say because of that Afenifere is a group of criminals .

“ The Nigerian government is speaking with the leadership of the Fulani herders association, Miyetti Allah. ”

When asked if it was true that the herders were offered N 100 m to help maintain peace , Shehu said, “ That is 100 per cent untrue. I have confirmed that in all the meetings held , money was never discussed .

“ All of the issues were about the involvement of the leadership of Miyetti Allah and getting them to prevail upon its members and they are many . We asked them to help assist the administration to recover weapons which were owned by a lot of these elements. ”
