Fulani chiefs in Nigeria’s South West have appealed to the Afenifere Group to cooperate with them in finding a lasting solution to the perennial clashes between herdsmen and farmers in the country.

The remark was made by the Sarkin Fulani in Lagos, Alhaji Mohammed Bambado, at a press conference in Lagos on Sunday to address some critical issues arising from the recent kidnap of Chief Olu Falae.

The Fulani leaders also called on the government to support cattle rearers and set up ranches.

While addressing journalists, the Sarkin Fulani condemned the criminal acts of kidnapping or any form of threat to lives and property but was quick to say caution must be taken in handling such sensitive issues bordering on grazing and nomadic pastoralism.

They also called on government to support ranching as a way of dealing with the issue of perennial clashes between herdsmen and farmers.
