President Bola Tinubu comments on herdsmen activities
The president said:
"What is a shame. We have a lot of animals, and cows were not treated, and vets were not given an opportunity to do ranching and invest in ordinary dairy to provide food to our children. That is not how to plan; we are going to change that in this government."
In Benue, Nasarawa, Plateau in the north-central region of Nigeria, herdsmen and farmers have consistently clashed over alleged encroachment on farmlands and farm produce without compensation.
The development had led to another crisis, such as tribal clash and kidnapping, in which many host communities have accused the pastoralists of being the masterminds.
