Nasarawa farmers and Fulani herdsmen sign treaty

31 July 2012, 12:35

  Farmers and Fulani herdsmen have signed a peace agreement to avoid future crisis in Doma in Nasarawa State, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The agreement was signed by the Chairman, Doma Farmers Association, Mr Mustafa Osabo and Bello Inusa, Chairman, Fulani Association on Tuesday in Doma.

Speaking while signing the agreement, the duo said it was agreed that henceforth, none of the group should threaten the other in the course of carrying out its lawful activities.

They also said that it was agreed that nobody should take the law into his hands and that any issue that would lead to the breach of the existing peace should be reported to the appropriate authority.

The leaders, therefore, called on their followers to live in peace with one another.

They said that if there is no peace, there will be no development.

The chairman, Doma Local Government Council, Salisu Oga, had earlier urged the two groups to adhere to the agreement reached.

According to the chairman, no positive development can take place without peace

Oga, therefore, assured them of his government’s commitment to the security of lives and property in the area.

The signing of the agreement was witnessed by members of the two associations, the police and traditional rulers from the area.
