Female lawyers lament herdsmen-farmers crisis, vow to defend women, children against attacks

The International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) Nigeria has lamented the crisis between herdsmen and farmers and urged the federal government to defend the lives and property of Nigerians against unsuspecting attacks by herdsmen.
In a statement on the recent killings in Benue state, the federation declared its readiness to use lawful means necessary to assist in ensuring a lasting solution to the menace of herdsmen attacks in the country.
We gathered that FIDA in its statement signed by the association’s national president and secretary general, Inime Aguma and Princess Frank-Chukwuani, respectively cited the effects of the killings on women and children, adding that the menace has gone far too long.
The statement read in part: “FIDA Nigeria seeks to express her revulsion and grave sorrow at the activities of the herdsmen, particularly on the recent Benue killings which claimed numerous lives, loss of property and caused great harm to the people of Benue state, especially their women and children.
"Women and children are amongst the most vulnerable groups in society and in an insecure society, they are the ones who suffer most. They are the most easily targeted and the most gruesomely violated".
We hope the steps this association wants to take gets support from necessary shareholders in the country,and that It will help in reducing the rate at which this herdsmen launch their attack...
