Root cause of the invasion, Daily Trust on Sunday was informed that the relationship between Ukpabi Nimbo and its herdsmen guests was severed in 2015, when the hosts demanded that the herdsmen must leave their land.
They accused them of unleashing destruction on their farms as well as raping their women. Last year, a fight between the herdsmen and Nimbo people reportedly led to the loss of lives on both sides. At last, the herdsmen were said to have angrily left the community, but some of them stayed back inside the bush.
Government must redouble efforts to create peace and security for both the herdsmen and their host communities, but grazing reserves should be dropped from the equation, because it could breed feelings of being cheated out of their ancestral lands.
Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremmadu has said there is nothing like Grazing bill in the National Assembly. Their should be nothing like it even with different semantics.
