Herders who clear out farms are doing it as a form of revenge - Governor Namadi

Governor Umar Namadi of Jigawa State has suggested that herders may be destroying farmers' crops as an act of revenge for losing their grazing reserves.

He made the claim while discussing insecurity in the North-West during an appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily program on Friday, June 28.

Governor Namadi said;

“Deliberate like in form of revenge. The herders felt their cattle route have been taken over, their grazing reserve has been taken over. So because of that they felt this is an injustice and they need to take a revenge.”

However, the governor noted that since taking office a year ago, his administration has been actively working to resolve the conflict and their peace efforts are beginning to show positive results.
