A fresh trouble is in the offing on the Plateau. It is another dark and indeed a tragic moment for traumatized farmers in Riyom and Barkin-Ladi local governments in Plateau State. This is because their farms with crops ready for harvest have been turned into grazing fields by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
Some of the farmers whose crops have become feeds for the cattle were brutally killed in previous attacks, which left scores dead in villages like Gashishes, Gindi-Akawati and Shonong. Some are still taking refuge at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps.
