President Muhammadu Buhari has said that ethnic and tribal clashes are threats to African unity and stability.

He compelled people to manage their diversities with patience and conception.

The President said this on the heels of the ethnic conflicts in the South Eastern Region of Salamat, Chad which claimed several lives.

According to a release by his spokesman, Malam Harba Shehu, the President, who extended his profound comfortings to President Idriss Deby Itno of Chad, said, “I am shocked and saddened by the incident that shattered decades of relative peace and stability in Chad.”
