The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has said the crisis between herdsmen and farmers across the country escalated due to the enactment of the Anti-Grazing Law.
The police boss urged states to suspend the Anti-Grazing laws until ranches had been put in place by the federal government.
He spoke during a closed-door meeting with the senate Committee on police at the National Assembly, on Friday.
A source at the meeting who spoke with TheCable said,“He (IGP) said the anti-grazing law is the issue and that it should be stopped temporarily but brought back after the ranches have been put in place by the federal government.
“He blamed the escalation of the clashes on the implementation of the anti-grazing law.”
The police boss also disclosed that about 100 people had been arrested in connection with Benue killings.
