Abuja –  Prof. Garba Sharubu of the Usmanu Danfodio University, Sokoto, on Friday called on the Federal Government to regulate grazing activities in the country to curb the recurring farmers/herdsmen clashes.

Sharubutu made the call in a paper tittled: “Identifying Regulatory Control for Movement of Livestock and Cultural Relationship With Farming Communities: Option for Peace’’ at the two-day security summit organised by the Nigeria Police Force and The Leadership Newspapers.

He also called on all States and Local Governments across the federation to regulate the activities of the herdsmen to end the clashes.

The Don said the states should also produce and legislate rearing of animals as professional activities, while grazing by minors and movement of cattle in the night should be banned.

Sharubutu called for the deployment of massive security personnel to the local government and rural areas so as to be able to promptly respond to crisis.

He decried a situation where personnel of the Police, Army and the NSCDC were concentrated in the cities, asking “who is going to protect our riches in the bushes.’’

Sharubutu also called for the involvement of traditional rulers in resolving the recurring farmers/herdsmen clashes and other crisis in the rural areas, saying that they had roles to play.

On his part, Prof. Armstrong Adejo of the Benue State University, called for continuous dialogue between the farmers and herdsmen to resolve the crisis.
