About 4,000 herdsmen have moved into Kaduna state from the south following the quit notice order given to criminal herders by some state governments in the south.

Journalists were told that a popular grazing community in the state, Labduga community in Kachia Local Government Area, started witnessing large influx of these herdsmen and their cattle, since last week.

Kaduna State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) has confirmed this development when its official, Hussaini Abdullahi said they  had so far verified about 4, 000, even as more are still on the way to Kaduna.

We will soon visit them and conduct a needs assessment of their situation to see where we can possibly assist them,” he said. In a related development, the Director of Publicity, Kaduna State Chapter of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Ibrahim Bayero, has lamented over the plight of the herdsmen and described their condition as pathetic.

Bayero said they have commenced mobilisation of members to see how they could assist the returnee herders.
