Gombe Bans Night Grazing And Cattle Movement To Curb Farmers, Herders Clashes

Gombe Govt Moves Curb Farmers, Herders Clashed

Muhammad Gettado, Commissioner for Agriculture and Animal Husbandry, who disclosed this during a press briefing, said Governor Muhammadu Yahaya also outlawed the movement of cattle from one Local Government Area to the other from October 2022 to January 2023.

Gettado, who also revealed that night grazing from 6pm to 6am is prohibited, said the decison was taken in a bid to curb farmers, herders’ clashes, stressing that there was need to maintain the food, going by current realities.

He said, “Council approved measures to curtail the fighting between farmers and herders in Gombe State. As you are fully aware, farmers used to come from other states passing through Gombe.

“Already about 35 to 40 percent of Gombe State farmers, infact northern Nigeria farmers have nothing to eat now they have finished what they produced because they got 10-15 percent of what they are supposed to get. In view of this there is need for government to take serious measures to atleast take care of the little we have on our farmers.

“The banning of herders from entering Gombe State from October 2022 to January was approved by state executive council we intend to restrict movement of cattle from one local government to another because most of the destruction is done by indigenous cattle in Gombe State. It should remain in the local government areas until 31st January 2023.”

The Commissioner warned against burning of crop residues, saying that it would sustain the animals upon their return to the farm by February 2023.

He said, “Burning of crops residue by the farmers after harvest is illegal because they are supposed to leave their harvest the rest is for the cattle.

“Night grazing is one of the issues we are having between farmers and herders from 6pm is very dangerous, usually they destroy farms, no night grazing from 6pm to 6am as far as Gombe is concerned.

“We have directed the leadership of Myetti Allah to make sure that no children is allowed to shepherd cattles because it one of the causes of farmers/herders conflict.”

KanyiDaily recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved recommendations of a committee to review 368 grazing sites across 25 states in the country.
