Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, has lamented the proliferation of arms including AK-47 rifles among herders and farmers in the country.
Lalong, who is also the Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, stressed that the full implementation of the National Livestock Transformation Plan was the solution to the frequent skirmishes between host farmers and nomadic cattle rearers.
He stated this while featuring on a televised program this morning.
The governor insisted that open grazing should be banned and the ranching system of cattle breeding embraced by all to restore peace in the country.
