A former governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, has advised the Tiv community in Sokoto State to live in peace with their host community, saying foreigners were behind the killings in Benue State.
Bafarawa made the remark while receiving a delegation of Tiv community under the leadership of Mr. Samuel Ambiam, who visited him in his residence in Sokoto on Tuesday.
He implored them to reciprocate the gesture given to them for many decades by the Hausa-Fulani in Sokoto State by living in harmony, as majority of them are now established with children and grandchildren.
He noted that most Fulani have been living peacefully with Tiv communities in all the states of the North without any problem.
Bafarawa however, lamented that due to misunderstanding and politics, they are now fighting and killing people without cogent reasons.
