Reps Tell President Buhari to restrict movement of Herdsmen from other African Countries into Nigeria to stop the attack on Farmers

By Chinenye Festus :-
As attack from armed Herdsmen continues to increase in farming communities across Nigeria which has caused poverty, destruction of farmlands, and in most cases death, the house of representative unanimously agreed and called on Mr President to stop the movement of herdsmen from other countries coming into Nigeria.
At a plenary on Tuesday, Ndidi Elumelu PDP(Delta) raised a motion and said that since security agencies have consistently maintained that one of the reasons why farmers are attacked is the migration of Herdsmen into Nigeria, it, therefore, becomes imperative that Herdsmen should no longer be granted entry into the country.
He said, “The clashes are becoming potentially as dangerous as the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East”.
” The violent conflicts between the nomadic herders from neighboring countries and local farmers is escalating by the day to more states of the federation, and if left unchecked will further threaten the security and stability of the nation”.
“Yet to date, response to the crisis at both the federal and state levels have been very poor and ineffective”.
“It has become necessary to lend a voice to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State that a stop is put to the movement of herdsmen from other African countries to Nigeria”.
The house was in full agreement to the motion raised and they ask the President Buhari led administration to restrict the movement of Herdsmen from other African Countries so as to curb the rate of crimes and other conflict-related issues associated with their movement across Nigeria.
