Herdsmenāš° Killings: Nigerian SenatešŸ”Š States Position

The Nigerian Senate has decried increasing cases of alleged herdsmen attacks on farming communities across the country, leading to loss of lives and property.
The Upper Chamber further urged the Federal Government to curtail movement of cattle in the country as a way of checkmating criminals who disguised as herdsmen to perpetrate evil.
NAN reports that the apex legislative chamber also asked security agencies to urgently fish out killers of one Dr Nnamdi Ogueche recently by suspected herdsmen in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State.
This followed a motion sponsored by Sen. Chukwuka Utazi (PDP, Enugu), titled, ā€œthe existential threat to the people of Uzo-Uwani LGA of Enugu Stateā€.
The Senate also requested the security agencies to tackle, as a matter of urgency, the increasingly criminal activities of some suspected herdsmen, who had taken over the farmlands in Uzo-Uwani.
The Red Chamber further urged the people of Uzo-Uwani Local Government and Adaba Community to maintain the peace while more effective strategies were being devised by the Federal and the Enugu State Governments to deal with the heinous activities of herdsmen on their land.
