Nigerian Army wednesday launched an operation tagged: ‘Operation Harbin Kunama II’ to tackle the menace of herdsmen in the southern part of Kaduna State.
Hundreds of people have been killed in the past five years by herdsmen while property estimated at billions of naira were destroyed.
The federal government, had in December last year, deployed troops and the police to the area to stop the mayhem, but the killings have continued with the recent one that claimed 12 lives in Asso village last Saturday.
