The National Economic Council (NEC) has set up a 10-member committee headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to work with the federal government towards ending the killings attributed to herdsmen in the country.
This was one of the decisions reached at a meeting of the National Economic Council held at the Presidential Villa on Thursday.
The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting presided over Osinbajo.
Ganduje named members of the committee to include governors of Kaduna, Zamfara, Taraba, Benue, Adamawa, Edo, Plateau, Oyo, and Ebonyi states.
The governor said the committee would collaborate with the Federal Government in addressing impunity regarding killings and violence.
