The Benue State Special Assistant on Herdsmen Matters, Alhaji Shehu Tambaya has on Friday urged herders coming into the state to follow the due process as enshrined in the state’s anti-grazing law.
Tambaya told our correspondent in Makurdi that the appeal became necessary to avoid unhealthy development as the dry season approaches and the herders would begin to move down the middle belt in search of greener pastures for their animals.
He said no herder was under threat following the ban on open grazing in the state.
The special assistant stressed that he was also born in Benue and have reared cattle all his life, noting that except for recent frequent clashes between herders and farmers occasioned by killings which necessitated the law, both parties had lived in peace.
Tambaya therefore emphasised that the law was not made for a section of herders but for everyone who irrespective of tribe rears livestock and for farmers as well so as to ensure harmonious living anywhere in the state.
