Why do you find herdsmen killing comfortable – USA congress ask Buhari

The United States Congress has challenged President
Muhammadu Buhari to speak out against herdsmen killing people
across the country.
Chris Smith, the Chairman of the US House Subcommittee on
Global Human Rights, made the call in a statement on the Release
of the State Department’s International Religious Freedom Report.
While saying that the Congress was “watching the situation in
Nigeria with growing concern,” the statement accused the Federal
Government of appearing “too often to be indifferent to attacks by
Fulani herdsmen” on farmers.
The statement, which also treated the situation in three other
countries reads:
Chair of the House Subcommittee on Global Human Rights and a
senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, welcomed
the release of the State Department’s annual International
Religious Freedom Report and applauded Secretary Pompeo’s
announcement of a Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom
scheduled for July 25-26, 2018.
“Getting the facts right on the global state of religious freedom is
essential for the shaping of U.S. policy and priorities, and that is
why the State Department’s annual report is so important,” said
Smith, author of the Frank R. Wolf International Religious Freedom
Act of 2016, which gave the State Department tools and authority
to better promote international religious freedom. “I welcome the
report’s release and urge concerted action to protect this
fundamental freedom.”
“Religious freedom is under siege globally, challenging U.S.
interests. It is no coincidence that the worst violators of religious
freedom globally are also the biggest threats to our nation—those
who wish to do Americans the most harm, and those who most
want to tear down the pillars of democratic societies
