We Are Fighting Against the Laws of Benue State Government – Fulani Herdsmen




In Abuja, Fulani Herdsmen have disclosed that they are fighting to force the Benue state government reverse the anti grazing law. The Herdsmen refuse to accept the fact that the Benue state government rejected the open grazing law which empowered Herdsmen to displace the indigenous people of Benue state, destroy their farm lands and establish colonies for cows and Herdsmen freely.

It said:  “Government should also enact a national law to carter for the peculiar needs of pastoralists in particular and the livestock subsector in general since the mischievous anti-open grazing laws promulgated by some states have woefully failed to address the contentious issues.

The Herdsmen showered praises on some state governors that have already yielded to the demands of the Herdsmen, insisting that the federal government must establish laws that will compel state government to accept their demands.

“We wish to register our appreciation to all those who have refused to be blinded by sentiment and are standing on the path of truth and justice, especially the governors of Bayelsa, Plateau, Kogi and Nasarawa states, in the face of these complicated circumstances.
