The Nigerian Government will begin the establishment of cattle colonies designed to curb clashes between herdsmen and farmers next week.

Audu Ogbeh, the Minister of Agriculture, who disclosed this on Friday said the cattle colonies which will be established in all states is subject to the recommendation of the 10-man panel set up to solve the farmer’s/Herdsmen clashes.

He said this during a visit to the Agriculture and Veterinary Complex of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

“When we spoke of colonies, we were immediately greeted with reactions that this was an attempt to cease Nigeria’s land and give to the Fulanis to colonise,” Ogbeh said

“The intention is not for Fulanis or anyone to colonise any territory. It is to provide a haven for cattle to graze in peace under controlled environments to prevent the conflicts between farmers and herdsmen.

“Only yesterday, a committee was set up by the Vice President with members, most of them, state governors discussing this matter and resolving that states that are interested will begin work on this matter as soon as next week.”

Communities in Plateau, Benue, Nasarawa and other states have been plagued by numerous clashes between herdsmen and farmers, leading to the loss of several lives and destruction of property. (TV360 Nigeria)
