Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has opined that states that approved cattle colony proposed by federal government will face the consequences.
Omokri on Saturday revealed that Fulani herdsmen will keep requesting for more piece of land once cattle colony is approved.
According to him, this will lead to increase in population of herdsmen.
He tweeted, “Here is what will happen to any state that allows cattle colonies. They will take the land you give them. They will increase in population. They will appoint a king. They will ask for more land. You will say no. Then at that point you will know the real meaning of the word colony.”
So far, Sixteen Nigerian states have agreed to establishcattle colonies proposed by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh as a solution to the incessant herdsmen crisis.
It was gathered that the 16 states, all in the North, have volunteered land for the establishment of cattle colonies in their domain while all the 17 states of Southern Nigeria have refused to volunteer land for colonies.
