Nasarawa Ethnic Nationalities Raise Alarm Over Alleged Land Grabbing By Fulani Militia

Ethnic nationalities in Nasarawa State under the aegis of Forum of Ethnic Youth Presidents of Nasarawa State have raised alarm over what they described as land grabbing going on in the State.

Addressing the press on Wednesday (February 7, 2024) in Lafia, the group alleged that “there is an ongoing continuous crisis and land grabbing in Nasarawa State especially in the rural areas as villagers have continued to suffer attacks especially in their farms leading to loss of lives and body parts. Those who attempted to return to their hitherto deserted communities after their initial displacement met their untimely death or met new occupants of their relics and the new occupants in the rural areas have been mainly from the Fulani extraction.”

They said the trend is a serious threat to the security of the citizens of Nasarawa State and called on the Governor, Engr. Abdullahi Sule to curb the trend before it gets worse urging the government to set up a commission of enquiry to look into the security loopholes in Nasarawa State.

The group also condemned the formation of the Nomad Vigilante Group in the State and called for the incarceration of the convener of the outfit and President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Bodejo.

They also called for the redeployment of the Commissioner of Police in Nasarawa State as well as all the security heads that attended the inauguration of the Nomad Vigilante Group in January 2024.
