In Nasarawa, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN has constituted security committees to find solutions to lingering crises between farmers and herders in the state.

The state chairman, Alhaji Muhammad Hussaini stated this in Keana at the end of an emergency meeting with Fulani community from Nasarawa south senatorial district.

Alhaji Muhammad said the increasing rate of insecurity following incessant attacks and counter attacks between farmers and fulani herders, especially around border Communities of Benue and Nasarawa States have become worrisome considering the human and material losses.

He stated that the committees comprising 10 members from Awe, Obi, Doma and Keana Local Government Area of Nasarawa State would work closely with farmers and herders in the border areas of the two states to identify the causes of the clashes and proffer a solution.

North Central Zonal Chairman of MACBAN, Alhaji Danladi Ciroma urged Fulani community leaders to collaborate with security agencies to fish out bad ones among them.

He called on Fulani youths to desist from taking laws into their hands at the slightest provocation.

The meeting had representatives from the Army, the police and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.
