Following the widespread report that Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai paid Fulani Herdsmen to stop the killing of Southern Kaduna people, the governor has clarified the air.
Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai on Wednesday denied paying herdsmen over the killings in southern Kaduna as was reported in the media.
This was revealed by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Samuel Aruwan while speaking at a news conference yesterday. He said el-Rufai never paid herdsmen money to either appease them or armed them as widely reported in the media.
According to him, the idea came from late Governor Patrick Yakowa’s initiative, which involved persuading aggrieved Fulani to forgive the losses they suffered in the 2011 postelection violence and that they responded by asking for compensation for the lost cattle. 
Aruwan, who lamented the distortion of what the governor said in an interview with some journalists last week, said that ‘government is combining security action with dialogue and peace-building efforts in southern Kaduna.’

According to the governor’s spokesman, “el-Rufai has continued what was admirable in the peace efforts of late Governor Patrick Yakowa, and would do whatever is legitimate to secure lasting peace in the area.”
Aruwan added that the late Yakowa tried to foster reconciliation with the affected Fulani communities to stem the spiral of vengeance and reprisals.
“Yakowa’s efforts were not sustained after his death and violence persisted. When it became our responsibility to provide security for the state, we re-established these contacts so that those who felt they lost out in the 2011 election violence could be appeased,” he explained.
He said: “The quest for peace and the imperative of stemming human suffering requires leaders to explore conventional and unusual means to build peace.”
It is believed the money was paid as compensation for the loss the men suffered in 2011 and not for the killing of the innocent people in Southern Kaduna.
