Farmers/Herdsmen Clashes: 905km Cattle Routes For Demarcation In Katsina



No fewer than 905km of local and international livestock routes across Katsina State have been earmarked for demarcation with 4240 beacons in phase one of the project expected to completed in six weeks.
The chairman of the State Standing Committee on Cooperation Between Farmers and Herdsmen, Alhaji Abdulaziz Lawal K/Sauri, who made this known in Katsina at the weekend, said the exercise is aimed at fostering smooth passage of pastoralists and prevention of the very rare farmers/herdsmen clashes in the state.

He said the state governor, Aminu Bello Masari, has approved the commencement of the exercise which will be carried out by the committee across some selected cattle routes in Ingawa, Jibia, Batsari, Safana, Danmusa, Kafur, Faskari, Zango and Baure Local Government Areas of the state. “The committee therefore appealed for support and cooperation of the general public especially those who live or have farmlands in the areas to be affected by the exercise,” said K/Sauri.
