Social media escalating war between Herdsmen & farmers in Nigeria – Minister of Interior says  


Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, today blamed the increasing rate in herdsmen and farmers clash in Nigeria, on conflicting reports on social media. Dambazzau said this while speaking during an inaugural meeting for stakeholders on the conflict in Abuja yesterday April 14.

“The rise of the social media has given scope to the non-traditional media outlets which has seen interest groups frame stories surrounding the conflict in ways that tend to undermine the cooperate existence of Nigeria” he said.

He added that the crisis poses a threat to the unity of Nigeria and so must be addressed urgently.
