Herdsmen, Farmers May Clash Soon, Emir Of Kano Warns
By Ogbolu George
Muhammadu Sanusi, the Emir of Kano, has warned of a potential clash between farmers and herdsmen in Kano if some local government council chairmen are not stopped from selling grazing reserves.
The Emir, who gave the warning at a two-day workshop themed ”Managing Security at Local Government Level” and organised by the Kano State Ministry of Local Government, called on the state government to check the alleged practice by the local government council chairmen.
Emir Sanusi urged state governments to address the situation so as to forestall killing in the affected area.
He called on the local government chairmen as well as district heads to unite against any security threat in their domains.
The royal father also said the general public should prioritise personal security.
Speaking earlier, Murtala Garo, the Kano State Commissioner for Local Government, said that the incessant attacks in Borno State and other parts of the North-East necessitated the decision to hold the workshop.
