The Southern Governors Forum has reiterated its ban on open grazing across southern Nigeria, adding that no land will be ceded to invaders posing as herdsmen.
Abdulrazak Hamzat, an Abuja-based activist has said open grazing should be banned all over Nigeria by the federal government, saying the practice is outdated.
Over 20 people have been killed, many injured by bandits in a fresh attack on 5 communities in Zurmi and Kaura Namoda local government areas of Zamfara state.
The executive governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom has announced that he will no longer be making the deaths of those killed by herdsmen in the state public.
