Armed herdsmen destroys 750 hectares of rice farm in Taraba

Armed herdsmen recently attacked 750 hectares of rice farm in Dubale Village of Lau Council, Taraba State, cultivated by Wal-Wanne Nigeria Limited. News gathered that the herdsmen and their cattle destroyed the farm cultivated by the company.

Muhammed Musa who’s the farm Coordinator told press on Wednesday, that the rice farm had yielded well and harvest was about to commence when the herdsmen brought about 2,000 cows to occupy and destroy it.


Muhammed Musa appealed to security operatives to help in arresting the armed herdsmen and called on the government to compensate the company and other affected farmers in the area in order to keep the hope of ensuring 
food security alive.

“As a company, we have been farming rice in many states of the federation; but we have never witnessed destruction of this magnitude.

“I am so surprised at the manner in which armed herdsmen move about destroying farms in the state.”

Police Public Relations Officer, ASP David Missal, also urged the company to report the incident to the Lau Divisional Police Station for immediate action.
