We'll tackle farmers, herdsmen clash - Abaji Chairman

The administration of Aba­ji Area Council has taken steps to sustain the peace­ful coexistence among farmers and herdsmen in the area.
This followed the composi­tion of a 21 man committee by Chairman of the council, Alhaji Abdulrahman Ajiya, to curb any clash that may occur between the farmers and herdsmen.
Ajiya, who was represented by the council secretary, while inaugurating the committee at the council’s conference hall, said the council decision to set up the committee was informed by the reported cases of alleged destruction of farm produce by cattle in some of the communi­ties.
He said that the setting up of the committee will no doubt douse tension and curtail clash or misunderstanding between the farmers and herdsmen across the ten wards of the council.
The 21 man committee, in­cluded the representatives of the police, Civil Defence, tra­ditional rulers, village/district heads, Ardo Fulani, chief of farmers, religious leaders, chief Imam of Abaji among other groups.
