Youths in Jalingo, Taraba state, have taken to the streets, rejecting the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government’s planned Ruga settlements in the state.

The federal government’s National Livestock Transformation Scheme plans to establish ranches in Lau, Zing, Ibi and Sarduana local government areas of the state.

The protesting youths insisted that the ranching model proposed by Governor Darius Ishaku was the panacea to real peace in the state.

They, therefore, urged the state government to enforce the anti-open grazing and ranching law established in 2017. (Agency report)
