     From the limited information you are giving, my guess is that nhrpd 
doesn't have permissions to access the VICI socket. nhrpd is probably 
configured as  part of FRR/Quagga  with permissions to access  
/var/run/frr or /var/run/quagga only. Whereas the vici socket, according to


is: unix:///var/run/charon.vici

Give nhrpd permissions to access to this file and you should be good to.
