Urhobo people have no land for cows – Senator Omo-Agege to Buhari




The Senator representing Delta Central, in the national assembly Ovi Omo-Agege, has told President Muhammadu Buhari that Urhobo people have no land to accommodate the proposed castle colony.

He also asked the Federal Government to jettison the idea of creating cattle colonies in any part of Urhobo land.

Senator Omo-Agege, elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, said “every part of the country should strongly reject the idea.”

He said that the establishment of cattle colonies would not curb the herdsmen and farmers crisis, rather, it will further exacerbate the problem.

He said this in a statement made available to reporters in Abuja yesterday, where he insisted that “The only way out of the problem of herdsmen clash with natives across the country would be strict enforcement of fire arms law that will ensure safety of communities and peaceful co-existence between herdsmen and farmers in any part of the country.”

The lawmaker called on the police and other security agencies “to therefore do their job by disarming the herdsmen, arrest and prosecute the perpetrators of the heinous crimes and establish law and order in the affected communities.

“And now is the time to act. The Nigerian Fire Arms Act (1990) prohibits non-military members of the public from carrying military grade weapons such as the AK-47.”
