Osinbajo visits victims of Adamawa communal violence


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is currently in Numan, Adamawa, to visit the victims of the communal violence, also, to find a lasting solution to such kind of problem.

Why it matters: A fresh outbreak of communal violence was reported in three villages in Adamawa – Lawaru, Dong and Kiken villages in Demsa and Numan Local Government areas.

Fleeing residents said the attack started at about 5 am when gunmen suspected to be herdsmen allegedly shot their way into the villages.

Osinbajo disclosed the visit through his Twitter handle adding, “I have met with the Lamido Adamawa and now in Numan meeting with community leaders and a host of government officials.”

“In my meetings, I made this point: What our people want is to be led to progress. As leaders, our duty is to lead the people towards prosperity & development. That is the kind of leadership we must provide. If we don’t provide that, then we have lost our rights to be leaders.”
