AIG orders patrols to curb herdsmen, farmers’ clashes

AIG orders patrols to curb herdsmen, farmers’ clashes
Mohammed Jinjiri Abubakar

Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of zone three, Mohammed Jinjiri Abubakar, has ordered the three commands under him to immediately begin patrols on routes or an­ticipated flash points of clashes between farmers and Fulani herdsmen.

The AIG whose com­mand include Adamawa, Gombe and Taraba gave the order yesterday in Gombe during a tour of the Police Command where he said the patrol was expected to last till March next year when har­vests would have been con­cluded.

The AIG, who regret­ted that most of the herds­men are foreigners, said they have caused untold hardship and destroyed millions of naira worth of foodstuff. He said few days ago herdsmen invaded his farm, leaving immeasur­able level of destruction.

In a parley with mem­bers of Gombe State Po­lice Community Relations Committee, the AIG urged traditional rulers to keep “eagle eye” on their com­munities and work hand-in-hand with the police in the fight against crime.

He said the zone had suf­fered untold devastation of lives and property in the hands of insurgents, especially in the last three years, but assured that with intensified onslaught on the insurgents, their ac­tivities are gradually wan­ing.

He urged members of the public to intensify in­formation sharing with security agents and also thoroughly investigate strangers in their midst as such persons were al­ways the ones that foment trouble or turn out to be terrorists.

Earlier in the palace of the Emir of Gombe, Abubakar Shehu Abuba­kar III, the DIG appreciat­ed the interest and effort of the monarch in ensuring peace in the state. He said even with the activities of the insurgents, the police still kept faith by discharg­ing their duties diligently.

The emir commended the police and said the Emirate enjoys 100 per cent support from them, espe­cially during this period of insurgency.
