We Won’t Allow Cattle Colonies In Our Zone, Middle Belt Declares. News by Stingman: 11:45am On Jan 14
FOLLOWING the moves by the Federal Government to introduce cattle colonies in the country as a panacea to the clashes between farmers and herdsmen, the Association of Middle Belt Ethnic Nationalities (ASOMBEN) has rejected the idea, vowing never to cede any land from the geopolitical zone for such project.



The pressure group, in a statement signed by its national chairman, Sule Kwasau and Secretary, Reverend James Pam, said the idea of creating grazing colonies across for the Fulani herdsmen was obnoxious and objectionable.

”The idea of creating grazing colonies on our farmlands as a solution is obnoxious and objectionable to us. It’s a subtle attempt by one tribe to take over our God-given, ancestral land and eventually take over the whole country. We totally reject the idea and vouch not to cede any land for such a project,” the statement said.

The group expressed “shock and consternation over the gory killings of Benue State citizens by Fulani militia in cold blood” and sympathised with the governor, Samuel Ortom, the Tor Tiv and the entire people of the state over the tragedy.

It urged the Federal Government to live up to its responsibility of protecting life and property, accusing government of demonstrating bias in its attitude towards “the Fulani militia that terrorising the Middle Belt, the South-West, the South-South and the South-East States.”



The body warned that without adequate protection from government, the communities coming under frequent attacks from Fulani herdsmen would have no option but to arm themselves for self defence.

According to the group, “the only plausible and permanent solution to these unwarranted murderous attacks is the restructuring of Nigeria as recommended by the 2014 national conference.”

The group endorsed the decision reached by the cultural and political leaders of the South-West, South-South, South-East and Middle Belt during the recent “Handshake Across The Niger” festival that there would be no general election in 2019 if Nigeria is not restructured.

In a related development, a group christened Plateau Youth G17 Peace and Progress Forum has described the statement credited to Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State against his Benue State counterpart, Governor Ortom as not only disturbing and sad but disappointing.

The group said the statement had shown clearly that Governor Lalong was yet to come to come to terms with the threats of insecurity staring at him in his state.

The group, in a statement by its coordinator, Mr DachungBagos, berated Lalong for his utterances which it said were uncharitable and without empathy to the present predicament of the people at a trying period.

“We distant ourselves completely from such careless disposition which has shown his inability to comprehend the interest of his people,” said the group.

The group enjoined Governor Ortom to remain resolute to policies and programmes that would keep his people and state safe and not be discouraged by those bent on disrupting the peace, unity, security, growth and development of the state.

pmb & his routine of dumb political appointees are a bunch of arrogant feudal lords...

they sit in their high castles & pronounce 'stupidity'.


pig farming is not allowed in many states in the core north but they want every state to have a cattle colony...


cattle rearing is a private business & those interested in it should approach land owners/developers & consult other relevant interests to PURCHASE/LEASE & DEVELOP the land for business uses...


if government is going to give free handouts to cattle rearers, then it should be ready to so same for even those in subsistence agriculture...
Re: We Won’t Allow Cattle Colonies In Our Zone, Middle Belt Declares. News by fitzmayowa: 12:42pm On Jan 14
Rearing cattle is a business venture and like a business the business owner should be responsible for his or her own business...


The fulani herdsmen should buy lands and turn them into ranches for their cattle since that's their line of business, I don't remember the FG creating a "business colonies" for the Igbo's at alaba, ladipo and other areas igbo's are doing their businesses dominantly...

Just look at how almost every one in Nigeria is rejecting the Fulanis these pple are not respecting their hosts and they appear to even be the most disadvantaged ethnic group in this contraption yet they have refused to humble themselves.

bunch of comedians in a circus act,they just gather themselves in a room and issue a statement to play along and feel some sense of importance..pls when you say "the Association of Middle Belt Ethnic Nationalities (ASOMBEN) " does that also consist/include 5 of the APC/MUSLIM governors out of 8 in the MB,over 50% of Muslims in the MB and other minorities who are in symphaty with the fulani's? undecided..pls who are u fooling?,certainly not us! maybe the few on nairaland and social media...

if a governor decides that there will be fulani grazing areas,what can the likes of Sule Kwasau and Rev.James Pam do about it?,these are the people that are not even known within their domain,it baffles me when they say MB in general,like it's their family property cheesy

these people have been issuing statement since Obasanjo's era and still yet,nothing has change,another Nnmadi Kanu in the making,that's how they keep fleecing innocent delusional people through the media..trypical example of "empty dog makes the loudest bark",the difference is that the fulani herdsmen strategize and walk the talk

the MB should proffer solutions not just keep shouting "no grazing" it wouldn't change anything

hahaha they " vowing never to cede any land" as if the land belongs to them only,what if I decide to cede my land to them nko!? grin,let them keep deceiving themselves..we don't live by the media

as far as we are concerned,fulani has come to stay in the MB and there is nothing u can do about it,ask nasarawa,Niger,kogi,platue,taraba and adamawa
