The Presidency has stated that the recently launched “Operation Cat Race Exercise” by the military will end the crisis between herdsmen and farmers in the North Central.
This was disclosed on Monday by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, in a video posted on Facebook.
Adesina said: “The exercise that the Nigerian Army called ‘Operation Cat Race’ had been announced and it takes off later this week in the North-central zone.
“It is expected that this would bring under control, to a large extent, the issues of farmers and herdsmen crisis and other ancillary security challenges in that zone.”
He also spoke on the Security Council meeting between Buhari and his security chiefs.
Adesina said issues considered included the “farmers-herdsmen, arm banditry, cattle rustling and anything that constitutes security challenge.”
