Ganjude blames herders for insecurity in Nigeria


Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has blamed the influx of foreign herders into Nigeria as responsible for the spate of insecurity in the nation.


The Governor spoke during the commissioning of 25 housing units of RUGA settlement project at Dansoshiya forest, in Kiru Local Government Area on Saturday.

He called on the Federal Government to halt the movement of herdsmen from other Countries to Nigeria towards curbing Fulani-herders conflict in some parts of Nigeria.

To “successfully and effectively prevent the coming of herdsmen from other African Countries, and because they come to this Country with guns and other weapons, which flame the clash between herders and farmers.

“As they come with such weapons, they take crimes and criminalities to the Country, adding that, “That movement is what brings to us all sort of clashes between herders and other communities, apart from the farmers”.

He added that the measure would serve as nucleus of RUGA settlement project in the State.

He said criminal activities would be curtailed with the establishment of RUGA settlement, which include cattle rustling, kidnapping and armed robbery, among others.

“It is absolutely necessary to improve and modernise breeding system for Fulani cattle. As it clear that a gallon of milk is more expensive than one gallon of petrol, it is therefore necessary for us to utilize this great opportunity,” he said.
