Britain’s Prince Charles would engage in peace-building activities, including addressing the persistent attacks of herdsmen on farming communities in Nigeria, British High Commissioner to Nigeria Paul Arkwright said Sunday.
The Prince of Wales and his wife, Princess Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are expected in Nigeria on Nov. 6-8 in a visit during which the two would also meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Arkwright said one of the events on the agenda was for Prince Charles to discuss practical solutions to alleviating the tensions, arising from the activities of herdsmen.
Herdsmen have attacked farming communities in Nigeria in recent years, raising concerns over the future of farming in a nation with the majority of its populace engaged in subsistence agriculture.
Arkwright said addressing the root causes of conflicts would lead to a peaceful and more prosperous Nigeria and also become beneficial to the relations between Britain and Nigeria.
