Insecurity: Arewa Urges FG To Stop Foreign Herders In Nigeria

Arewa Consultative Forum- a Nothern socio-political group has reportedly shown its support for the ban slammed on Open Grazing by southern Governors.

According to reports, the National Chairman of the ACF and former Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, in a statement, said his group would not object to decisions taken in the best interest of Nigerians.

However,  he argued that mere banning must not be the case, adding that the Nigerian government should review Article 3 of the ECOWAS protocol, especially as regards the free movement of cattle and other livestock into the country without restriction.

He disclosed that most of the violent herders are from neighboring countries, stating that the “Federal Government must stop them.”

Ogbeh also urged the Northern governors to emulate the southern governors in favour of the development of ranches across their states.
