A Fulani socio-cultural association, Miyetti Allah Kautal-Hore has called on the Federal and State governments to retrieve lands gazetted as grazing reserves from farmers and hand them over to herdsmen.
The body made the call while insisting that government secure grazing reserves across the country to curb the recurring crisis between farmers and herdsmen across the country.
Speaking during a visit to the Governor of Sokoto State, the National President of the group, Alhaji Bello Badejo said most gazetted grazing reserves have been appropriated to farmers.
He said, “The Federal Government should bring back our grazing reserves, some are gazetted and some are not.
“We do not know the reason why the government is delaying the preparation of the grazing reserves so that cattle herders can go back to their grazing areas.
“We have the national and the international cattle route, where are they now? This is because the government is not serious about the reserves.
“We are saying that if these ranches are in place, farmers and herders crisis would have been resolved most significantly.”

this guys shouldn’t start any trouble again
So a long time ago, people’s lands were taken from them and given to these herdsmen as grazing reserves and routes? That’s where the problem started.
