A Muslim rights group, known as Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has urged the Federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari, to initiate a peace process, between the Fulani herdsmen and farmers to avoid war.
MURIC also advised the Federal government, to start the peace process by rehabilitating the house of Yoruba Activist, Sunady Adeyemo, known as Sunday Igboho, which was burnt by unknown mobs, and the house of Seriki Fulani in Oyo state, which was also burnt by mobs.
MURIC went further to advice the Federal government, to buy lands for Fulani herders to start up ranching, stating that open grazing has been outdated, and is not sustainable with modern method of animal rearing.
In a statement signed by its Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, made available to newsmen, on Thursday obtained by Nationalwatchng, MURIC said, while it may be an expensive plan, it is cheaper when considered with effects of war.
Prof. Ishaq Akintola said: “The state of the nation demands that Nigeria must begin a national healing process.
“The situation requires the immediate intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari as a statesman, not as a politician.

“FG can kick-start the process of national healing by rolling out a comprehensive plan of compensation for all those who lost properties and bread winners to clashes between herders and farmers. For example, the houses of Sunday Igboho and those of the Seriki Fulani of Igangan as well as the victims of the Shasha ethnic clash may be rehabilitated in the interest of peace.
“These steps cost a lot of money, but peace building is expected to be expensive. Yet it costs less than war. The ravages of war are better imagined than experienced.”
