No Land for Cattle Colonies in Taraba State’ – Hon Akirikwen


In the face of the spate of deadly attacks by armed Fulani herdsmen in some parts of the country, the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Taraba State, Hon Yusuf Nya Akirikwen ESQ, has said that the state has no land for cattle colonies as proposed by the Federal Government.

Mr Akirikwen made the pronouncement in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital, while speaking to newsmen.

The Attorney General maintained that the state government has enacted a law for the establishment of ranches which will come into effect on January 24.

He therefore called on the Federal Government to support the state in implementing the law which he described as the best for cattle keepers globally.
