The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has made an interesting revelation about the true identity of the herdsmen that has kidnapped and caused the death of some prominent Nigerians.
Arase revealed that the notorious herdsmen are not Nigerians but rather come from Mali and Chad. According to him, cattle rustlers are able to gain entrance into the country with their cattle as a result of the porous borders.
He disclosed this during an interactive session with farmers and other stakeholders in Ondo State held at the Officers’ Mess in Akure, the state capital on Friday.
Arase said, “We should also know about the history of migration. Most of these herdsmen are not Nigerians. They are people from Mali, Chad, who came into our system. So, that is why we have to be very careful. Our borders are very porous. Predominantly our own herdsmen are law abiding people.
“But when people come from outside with their cattle, we should not deny them entry because of ECOWAS protocols, good neighborliness but, at the same time, we should not allow them to embark on criminal activities.”
During the visit, the police boss met with the state governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, and discussed the possibility of setting up cattle ranches across the country to end the incessant clashes between the herdsmen and the farmers.
“I have taken suggestions about how we can develop big ranches so that they can stop grazing on farmlands,” the IGP stated.
He also urged the farmers and other stakeholder to be careful and take caution in dealing with the herdsmen as they may be dangerous and armed.
