Fulani Herdsmen Have Been Asked to Relocate to Their Grazing Field in the North


A meeting of all the stake holders in the Fulani Herdsmen attack on Middle Belt was held in Benue state. According to the chairman of the committee mediating in the herdsmen and farmers crisis, Governor Dave Umahi who briefed newsmen after the meeting, explained that Fulani Herdsmen understands that the only option available for them was to relocate to the North where grazing reserves have been prepared for them.

The Committee established the fact that Fulani Herdsmen were enraged by the ant-grazing law in Benue but must accept the fact that Benue state has the right to enact laws within the state.
Fulani-herdsmen however, asked for more time to help them adapt to the new policy as well as resort to grazing in the grazing reserves already developed in the Northern parts of the country.

This position was reached at the end of the meeting by the herdsmen, stakeholders and governors of Benue and Nasarawa states with members of Technical Sub Committee of National Economic Council Committee mediating in the herdsmen and farmers crisis in Benue, Nasarawa, Adamawa and Taraba states, headed by Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State.
