Herdsman to be registered in Kwara LGA
Herdsman to be registered in Kwara LGA
Mallam Musa Buge, the Chairman of the Transitional Implementation Committee (TIC) for Baruten Local Government Council of Kwara, on Tuesday said it would henceforth register foreign herdsmen moving into the council area.
According to Buge in Kosubosu, headquarters of the council area, that the measure was to ascertain the identity of the herdsmen moving in as well as   put in place proper security measures to avert clashes with farmers.
He clarified that the measure was not to discourage those who may wish to reside in the council area, but to promote peace and security.
The council chief condemned the recent clash between farmers and herdsmen in Yakira community where four people were confirmed dead and several others injured.
He also said that the council would hold regular security meetings with relevant stakeholders to resolve the issue and pacify the aggrieved.
“The meeting is to be attended by the leadership of the state branch of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria and we will work to resolve the issue amicably,’’ he said.
He, however, urged cattle breeders to be careful in the choice of  herdsmen to engage, saying  most of the crises in the area  were caused  by  hired herdsmen rather  than resident cattle owners.
