My brother, foolishness is a bit hard to use on the president. But I must say that being nomads doesn't mean they can't be made to settle in designated places.

Until the Red Indians in America accepted (under duress) the need to curtail their nomadic lifestyle, they saw enforcement which almost wiped them out. It was a hard decision, and from the humanitarian view, a bad thing to kill innocent people (I am not advocating for same and also not telling the full story). But the time to change their lifestyle has arrived and it can't be reversed.

It is time African governments woke up to the reality of ranches. See the mess in Nigeria, where these Fulani herdsmen are wiping out whole villages over land which isn't theirs in the first place.

If they don't desire settlements, then what is the essence of the killings?

The best way out is to designate areas for ranch development and enforce, sometimes to the point of being harsh the relocation of these Fulani herdsmen.
