Nigerian Police Advice to Bauchi Farmers: Harvest Your Crops Quickly to Allow Herdsmen’s Free Grazing and Prevent Clashes

In order to allow herders to graze freely and prevent farmers/herders conflicts, the Nigeria Police Force’s Bauchi State Command has urged farmers in the state to harvest their crops right away.

This was said in a statement provided to journalists on Saturday by SP Ahmed Wakili, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Command.

According to a police spokesperson, the Command has identified various social vices as potential security threats for the fall season in the state and other parts of the country, including herders’/farmers’ clashes, communal clashes, armed robberies, kidnapping and abduction, road accidents, theft of farm produce, mischief, and thuggery.

In light of this, the Command urged everyone to familiarize themselves with and abide by proactive security measures in order to improve the state’s overall safety and security.

According to the police spokeswoman, “the Command called on the respective organs to refrain from acts of mischief or any acts that could lead to the breakdown of law and order and Public peace in order to avoid herders-farmers and communal clashes.

“However, before herders begin grazing freely and the situation deteriorates into the aforementioned, producers are encouraged to remove their farm products as soon as possible.

Additionally, all herders are sternly instructed not to stray onto farmers’ fields before they are harvested.
