Jang wants open grazing outlawed in Plateau
Following resumption of violent attacks in Plateau State in which over 60 persons have been murdered in the last two months, the Senator representing Plateau North in the National Assembly, Jonah David Jang, has reiterated his call for ban of open grazing, saying now is the appropriate time for it to be outlawed.
In a statement signed by his media consultant, Mr. Clinton Garuba, the Senator said: “The coordinated attacks Plateau State has suffered over the years reveal a sinister plot to use weapon of terror and barbarism to sack towns and villages, killing men, women, and children in service to an expansionist agenda to seize and occupy the ancestral lands of our people.
“The daring methods of the attackers, which seem to confound the might and sophistry of Nigeria’s armed forces, seek to return the country to the dark ages despite great advancements in civilization. It also calls to question, the will of government at all levels to secure lives and properties of its citizens.”
The statement added that the time has come for the Federal Government to review its strategy in dealing with violent conflicts, especially where herdsmen are concerned.
