Adamawa gets Agro Rangers Squad


Barely two days after the inauguration of National Livestock Transformation Plan by Federal Government, the Adamawa Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has inaugurated Agro Rangers Squad.

The Nigeria News Agency reports that rangers were created with the aim of tackling farmers/herders conflict in the state.

Mr Nurudeen Abdullahi, the state Commandant NSCDC inaugurated the squad on Thursday in Yola.

Abdullhi said the creation of the squad was on course to complement federal government efforts in finding lasting solution to the lingering farmers-herders’ conflicts.

“The squad was trained with additional combat skills to safeguard and protect grazing reserves across the state.

“The idea to form and train the squad is aimed to have lasting solutions to the farmers/herders crisis,” Abdullahi said.

He assured that with the creation of the special squad, farmer /herders’ conflict would be over in the state.

Gov Umaru Fintiri, represented by Ahmadu Baji, Permanent Secretary, Security, said the state government recently inaugurated new brand of vehicles to be distributed to security agencies in the state.

He said the development was aimed at improving security in the state.

The Lamido of Adamawa represented by Alhaji Mustpha Aminu, urged the corps to embark on sensitisation of the public about the programme.

Musdafa assured of the emirate council’s support in achieving the laudable programme.
