The IGP who advise on Wednesday said it would help to avert the now-rampant herdsmen-farmers clashes.

Speaking at the Northern States Stakeholders’ Security Summit in Kaduna, the police boss said the creation of ranches would give the police cause to arrest herders who graze in the open.

Reacting in a post on his Twitter page on Thursday, Omokri wondered if northern governors also build shops for Igbo traders.

He wrote: “Buhari’s inept IG of Police is urging Governors to establish ranches before the enforce anti grazing laws.
