People of Southern Kaduna have said that they are ready to enter into a dialogue with herdsmen attacking their communities to end the protracted killings in the area.
President of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), Solomon Musa gave this indication at a meeting with officials of the Global Peace Foundation of Nigeria.
Musa, who expressed concern over the killings by herdsmen, explained that the major task in the proposed dialogue is how to identify the people attacking their communities.
The SOKAPU president said since Governor Nasir El Rufai claimed that the attacking herdsmen are from 14 African countries, he should assist in bringing them forward for the proposed dialogue.
Hundreds of people in the area have been killed in the renewed attacks in the area, compelling the Nigerian Army to embark on establishing a forward operation base to ward off further attacks.
