From JIDAUNA YANUNG, ABUJA
THE Presidency has challenged the United Nation (UN) Rapporteur on violent Conflicts in Nigeria to adhere to truth in the presentation of reports.
A statement by the Senior special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu expressed disappointment that the rapporteur was silent on intra group violence in the organizations report.
This reaction is coming on the heels of a press report of the United Nations rapporteur on violence in Nigeria and its rippling effect.
The statement stated that in Benue and Taraba, Cross River States many part of the Country, most of the casualties resulted from intra group and community violence, many of the displaced persons across the Nation are also victims of these conflicts.
Continuing Garba Ahehu said, “There is no doubt that violence between formers and herders which has a long history in our country spilled recent years but the effectiveness with which the Federal and State authorities responded makes a big difference.
