Senate Rejects Fresh Moves To Create Grazing Routes.

Senate on Tuesday, rejected fresh moves to create grazing routes for cattle rearers in the country.

This is even as the Senate resolved to constitute an ad-hoc committee to organize a national summit to unravel the underlying causes of farmers/herders’ clashes in the country and come up with appropriate laws to deal with the menace.

The Senate observed a minute silence in honour of those who were killed in Omala LGA and urged the National Emergency Management Agency to provide the survivors now living in internally displaced persons’ camps with relief materials to enable them to return to their ancestral homes.

The resolutions of the Senate followed its consideration of a motion on the attack and killing of residents in Omala Local Government Area in Kogi state by herdsmen.

The motion was moved by Senator Isah Jibrin (APC – Kogi East).

While considering the motion, the Senate rejected an additional prayer by Senator Mohammed Tahir Monguno (APC – Borno North) which called on the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security to create new grazing routes in the country as a panacea to solve farmer/herder clashes in the country.
