HERDSMEN KILLINGS: I warned Ortom against anti-grazing law – Lalong

The Plateau State, Governor Simon Lalong, says he warned his Benue State counterpart, Samuel Ortom over the promulgation of the anti-open grazing law.

Governor Lalong who was in the State House to see President Muhammadu Buhari, says his recipe for tackling the herdsmen/farmers clashes is ranching and not anti-grazing laws.

He said his state donated parcels on land for ranching and believes government must make an investment in the venture.

This comes after the state government held a mass burial for the Benue residents who were killed in a clash between farmers and herdsmen on New Year’s day.

With the day being labeled as a ‘Black Thursday’ for the people of Benue state, many have cried out to the government to ensure that justice is served for the deceased.
