NSCDC Cautions Farmers On Grazing Reserves, Cattle Routes In Adamawa

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has cautioned farmers against encroachment into grazing reserves and cattle routes in Adamawa State.

The command’s public relations officer, DSC Nyako Hamidu Baba, urged farmers to stay clear of identified government grazing reserves and cattle routes in the state.

Baba said the directive was in line with the command’s ongoing efforts to maintain harmony and prevent conflicts between farmers and herders.

He said Commandant Ibrahim Mainasara advocated adherence to the guidelines as crucial for sustaining the peaceful coexistence and understanding among all stakeholders.

“It is imperative for farmers to respect designated grazing areas and cattle routes to avoid any unnecessary friction with herders.

“Our goal is to ensure that both communities can carry out their activities without interference. The NSCDC will continue to build on its achievements in providing safety and security to both farmers and herders.

In partnership with the Department of Livestock and Aquaculture under the Ministry of Agriculture, the corps has made significant strides in mitigating the activities of cattle rustling, which has been a persistent issue in the region.

“Through our collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, we have successfully reduced incidents of cattle rustling, thereby fostering trust and cooperation between the farming and herding communities,” he said.

The command reassured the public that it remained committed to addressing any security challenge that may arise and would continue to work diligently to safeguard the interests of all residents.
