Delta Govt Rejects Cattle Colonies, Urges FG To Disarm Armed Herdsmen
Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said the state does not have land for cattle colonies, and further urged the federal government to disarm armed herdsmen parading the country.
The governor stated this on Tuesday while addressing stakeholders at a meeting involving herdsmen, farmers, community leaders and heads of security agencies.
According to him, the armed herdsmen perpetrate crimes and other vices and should be immediately arrested.
The Governor also called on the Federal Government to come up with a clear-cut policy that will help bring an end to the menace.
He tasked Chairmen of local government councils to set up a special task force on security within one week with all interest groups duly represented.
