Nasarawa Governor, Tanko Al-Makura has urged residents to be calm as herdsmen move from Benue to nearby states following the ban on open-grazing.

The Benue state Government has already effected the ban on anti-grazing law.

Al-Makura, who said this after his visit to communities where some herdsmen have migrated to, said the situation was not critical yet.

He added that the government will put measures in place to avoid any disturbance of law and order.

“After advising all local government areas and stakeholders to remain calm and not allow any of such things to cause disruption of peace and order in the state, we felt we should also go and see for ourselves with all the security chiefs in the state,” the governor said.

“We have gone round about five local governments that make boundary with Benue State, we have noticed some movements of Fulanis migrating.

“But as far as we are concerned it has not reached an alarming stage. We are keeping our eyes opened and being vigilant to ensure that the migration does not disrupt peace and stability in the state.”
