Abdullahi Ganduje, the former governor of Kano State and current national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has identified the four categories of herders present in Nigeria.

Ganduje made this statement during a meeting with President Bola Tinubu and the security chiefs on Thursday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

According to the former Kano governor, the herders causing trouble include those travelling from outside the nation and those who roam from north to south.

He said:

“You are all aware that there are four types of herdsmen: the ones that are settled at home and have their [livestocks] around their homes and create no problems whatsoever.

“Another one, herdsmen moving from the northern parts of this country to the central part of Nigeria and the Southern parts of Nigeria, creating problems along the routes; and the other one is trans-human- herdsmen coming from West Africa down to northern Nigeria, down to the Middle Belt and down to the Southern part of Nigeria, creating a lot of problems down the roads.

“The fourth one are herdsmen who have settled among certain ethnic nationalities in Nigeria.

“Because in the yesteryears it was a symbiotic relationship between herdsmen and farmers.

“Herdsmen provide manures for the farmers and the farmers provide grazing areas for the herdsmen.”
