The clashes have claimed many lives and destroyed many properties.

Mr Buhari expressed this on his verified twitter handle on Saturday evening.

“The recent violent clashes between Jukuns and Tivs in Taraba State, and the Fulani, Genjon and Bachama in Adamawa State are needless and saddening. Violence cannot be the solution to the resolution of misunderstandings among people,” the President said.

Mr Buhari warned that violence makes the situation more complicated, adding that the local actors must come up with an initiative to end the violence

The President said “Once we abandon reason and good judgment, we‘re giving violence the chance to take over and make a bad situation more complicated, and difficult to resolve. The primary initiative for ending the violence once and for all must originate from the local actors involved in these clashes. “

The President called on the military agency to resolve the crisis, NEMA and NCRI to take care of the internally displaced people.

“The military has restored calm to the affected areas, and will not relent. The National Emergency Management Agency and the National Commission for Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons will also scale up their efforts in bringing succour to all the displaced people. ” He said.
