Call to end Nigeria’s ‘culture of killing’


A group of Nigerian students at Cambridge University in the UK have held a protest against the recent killings in the central Plateu state.

Authorities say 200 people were killed in three-days of conflict which started last week Thursday.

The students urged President Muhammadu Buhari to “end these killings”, saying that he has a duty to protect the lives of all Nigerians.

“These deaths from herdsmen attacks have become one too many; it has become regularised, it has become a culture, and we say no to that,” a statement from the Cambridge University Nigeria Student Society said.

Reports say fighting began when ethnic Berom farmers attacked Fulani herders, killing five of them.

A retaliatory attack on Saturday led to more deaths in a conflict that also divide people along political and religious lines.
