Fulani Herdsmen Now To Carry ID Cards In Delta State


The Delta State council’s Secretary, Richard Kofi while inaugurating a 16-man committee to enforce the directive in Ughelli at the weekend, has said herdsmen grazing their cattle within and around Ughelli South local government area of Delta State would, from Sunday, 11th Feb. bear Identity Cards after having their biometrics taken for them to embark on their trade in the area.

According to him, the ID card would be valid within Ughelli South council area alone. He also said the task before the committee include stemming the tide of herdsmen invasion of communities in the area, promote peaceful co- existence among cattle rearers, farmers and host communities, to provide inclusive participation of various interest groups in conflict management as well as to make appropriate recommendation to government on herdsmen/farmers activities.

Kofi, who doubles as chairman of the committee, noted that the ugly activities of some herdsmen in the area portended grave danger to lives and properties.

He said: “All herdsmen within the council area are to register and have their biometrics taken after which they will be given identity cards that will be valid within the area alone and anyone without the Identity Card will not be allowed to operate within Ughelli South.”
