  • Edo plans database of northerners to check activities of herdsmen
  • Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo said the
    government would set up a database of
    northerners resident in the state in order to
    tackle the rampant cases of attacks on farmers
    by herdsmen.
    Mr John Mayaki, the Chief Press Secretary to the
    Governor, said in a statement on Friday in Benin
    that the initiative would allow for easy
    identification of strange characters within their
    settlements.
    According to the statement, Obaseki made his
    intention known to members of the Arewa
    Community in the state after hosting them to
    iftar ( the traditional breaking of Ramadan fast) at
    Government House, Benin on Thursday night.
    The governor admonished members of the
    Arewa Community in the state to embrace the
    diversity which exists in Nigeria and forge a
    united bond.
    He asserted that no true Fulani herdsman would
    abandon his cattle and take to killing of innocent
    farmers.
    The governor said that the recent cases of rape
    and murder were perpetrated by foreign
    elements bent on causing conflict.
    ” To checkmate the ugly trend, a committee will
    be set up to carry out community by
    community delineation of northern settlers
    across the state to help identify new comers and
    their aim”, Obaseki said.
    Obaseki said that fenced grazing areas with
    watering facilities would be clearly defined by
    government for herdsmen to feed their cattle
    with payment of economic fees for services
    rendered.
    The governor assured them of fair treatment in
    spite of religious differences, acknowledging that
    intermarriage has made them stakeholders in
    Edo.
    Earlier in his remarks, the President of Arewa
    Community in Edo, Alhaji Umar , commended
    the governor for breaking fast with them.
    He stated that members of the Arewa
    community were unhappy with the recent
    attacks as it was giving them a bad name.
    Umar said that the community would support
    the state government in identifying and dealing
    with bad elements amongst the herdsmen.
    It would be recalled that suspected herdsmen
    had on May 22, killed two women in their farms
    in Ewu community, in Esan Central Local
    Government area of the state.
    Also earlier in the week, another killing was
    recoded in Ekpoma , Esan West Local
    Government Area. .(NAN)
