Miyetti Allah suspends night grazing in Nassarawa



Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association in Nassarawa State has suspended night grazing in the state, so as to reduce clashes between farmers and herders.
Chairman of the association, Alhaji Mohammed Hussaini revealed this in an interview with newsmen yesterday in Lafia.
Hussaini said the association had also banned the use of under-aged children, who they blamed for destruction of crops, for grazing.
According to him, the group had already directed its members to comply with the ban.
He also stated that violation of the directive would not be tolerated, and that anyone found guilty would face the full wrath of the law.
“We are not saying that children should not graze, but they must be in company with adults.
“Allowing children with cattle on their own, without being guided by adults, henceforth cannot be tolerated. Anyone caught will be sanctioned to serve as a deterrent to others,” the chairman said.
He further warned farmers to abstain from cultivating and blocking cattle routes, so as not obstruct herders in their grazing activities.
The chairman also called on other ethnic groups in the state to expose criminal elements among them, just like the Fulani are doing to sterilise the state.
According to him, the society cannot be secured if good people continue to harbour and protect criminals on the basis of sentiments.
“You cannot harbour criminals and just pray and wish that the country should be free of crimes,” he said.
