The National Economic Council (NEC) on Thursday agreed state governments should compensate victims of farmers/herders crises, who have lost livelihoods.
The Council, which was presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, also encouraged states to promote the modernisation of livestock farming.
These were two of the decisions reached during the meeting at the Old Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Presidential villa, Abuja.
Speaking on the matter at the post-council meeting briefing, Ogun Governor Dapo Abiodun noted many people suffered losses in targeted attacks and must be made to have a sense of compensation.
He said the council re-committed to the protection of all residents without discrimination, adding that Governors would also ensure that criminals are arrested and prosecuted.
