Herdsmen/farmers Clashes: Involve Only States Interested In Grazing Reserves – Shehu Sani tells FG

Former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani, on Tuesday, said the atrocities committed by bandits and armed herdsmen will rubbish any thought of reviving grazing routes in Nigeria.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had in July approved the recommendations of a committee to review “with dispatch,” 368 grazing sites, across 25 states in the country, “to determine the levels of encroachment.”

The move, according to a statement by presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, was to curb the bloody clashes between herders and farmers across the country.

However, Senator Sani, who wrote on his verified Facebook wall on Tuesday, added that, the federal government should only involve states interested in such projects.

He wrote; “The atrocities committed by Bandits and armed herdsmen even in the North makes non sense of any thought or idea of reviving or justifying grazing routes.The FG should only involve states interested in such projects.”
