Peace At Last! See The Decision Fulani Herdsmen Across Nigeria Have Finally Made.
The head of Fulani Herdsmen in the country, Ibrahim Zubairu revealed that herders across Nigeria have accepted to move to the Ruga settlement available in Kano state. He disclosed that Herders from about 5 States in the country just moved to the settlement.
He stated that the Kano State government had extended an invitation to any herder that had the interest to come, and provided they are well behaved they would be welcomed.
He disclosed one of the conditions of their operation in the State which is the total prohibition of nocturnal grazing. He said the government of Kano state accepted grazing only in the day time.
Citing the eviction order by the Ondo State government, Ibrahim urged headsmen in the state to give way to avoid harm and attacks.
Recall that the executive governor of Kano State, Ganduje had earlier proclaimed as unacceptable the movement of Herders towards the South, and requested that it should be discontinued.
The activities of murderous herdsmen have generated a lot of tensions in the country. Eviction orders upon orders have been issued in various parts of the country amidst security concerns. Southern regions, as a result of the development, proscribed open grazing in their regions.
Also, regional security efforts have been made, especially in the southern part of Nigeria to counteract the activities of killer Herdsmen. One of the regional security outfits set up by the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu called the Eastern Security Network (ESN) has been waiting to execute the open grazing prescription order by the Governors of South Eastern Nigeria. Probably, this is one of the reasons why they have decided to move the Herders over to the North.
Well, it is a welcomed development. That is the essence of acting whenever you’re pushed to the wall. Had it been everyone remained silent as had always been, they wouldn’t have seen reasons to do something about it.
