Fulani Bororo/farmers clashes: Oyo sets up stakeholders committees
As part of efforts to address the incessant crisis between Fulani Bororo herdsmen and farmers in Oyo, the state government has set up a stakeholder committee at both state and local government levels while urging those involved not to take laws into their hands.
The Special Adviser to Governor Abiola Ajimobi on Security, Mr. Olusegun Abolarinwa who disclosed this while addressing reporters on the activities of the government in averting the incessant clashes between the two groups said the committee is to ensure that peace reigns in the state.
He said, “the state government does not have any policy on grazing zone yet, as the federal government through the federal ministry of Agriculture is yet to make a pronouncement on nomadic rearing to be domesticated in all states and in the interim, the state government has taken proactive steps to constitute committees at both the state and local levels comprising security agencies, chairmen of local councils, farmers associations, committee of Fulani’s, miyetti Allah cattle rearers association of Nigeria, Seriki Hausawa, community leaders and relevant stake holders in the community.”
Besides, he stated that government is looking into crisis occurring in the religion sector as well as community related crises at the Ibarapa zone of the state with specific instructions to meet with the aggrieved sects of farmers and Fulani Bororo herdsmen.
