Rice farmer in Benue state

When contacted, Chidimma told Legit.ng that she was based in Zaki-Biam, Benue state. She said she had her own farm before herders' crisis damaged everything.

Her words:

"I am based in Zaki-Biam, Ukum L.G.A Benue state. I used to farm, but the farm was taken over by bandits. The price of rice fluctuates for reasons unknown to us, but for now 26/02/24, it’s sold for N50,600. It’s very tough and very stressful because the farmers are trying to hoard the grains in order to sell later to make more profit making it difficult for us to get some to process. I have been in the business for 7 years now."
