Herdsmen killings: Enugu bans cattle rearing, grazing

17 May 2016, 10:36

Enugu - Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and leaders of Fulani/Shuwa Arab herdsmen in the state have banned grazing and rearing of cattle at night in the state, Vanguard reports.

Also banned are the carrying of firearms or any form of ammunition by the herdsmen and movement of cattle from one location to another at night in the state.

This decision was arrived at during a peace committee meeting made up of representatives of the various interest groups from the Fulani/ Shuwa Arab Community and representatives and security agencies, among other stakeholders in the state.

During the meeting convened by Ugwuanyi, and also attended by leaders of some communities affected by the herdsmen menace in the state, it was also decided that compensation would be paid by herdsmen whose cattle destroyed farm crops while the communities would pay for any cattle killed by their members.

The governor according to Thisday had convened the meeting in furtherance of ongoing efforts of the state government to find a lasting solution to the
lingering clashes between Fulani herdsmen and their host communities, especially in the wake of the recent Nimbo killings.

It was also decided that violators of these resolutions will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
