A 30-day ultimatum has been served by the emir of Muri Empire in Taraba state, Abbas Njidda Tafida, to Herdsmen crouching on its land.

The order was issued immediately after the Eid Prayers, warning that all herdsmen must comply with the new rule.

The emir who spoke in Hausa language said villagers now feel unrest over attacks from herdsmen in the forests.

The emir said: “Because of this unending menace, every Fulani herdsman in the area have been given thirty days ultimatum to vacate the forests.

“We are tired of having sleepless nights and the hunger in the land is enormous and we will not allow it to continue.’’

The order has spurred residents to be more vigilant. Meanwhile, the Karaye emirate in Kano has suspended Abdullahi Sa’adu, the village head of Butu-Butu in Rimingado LGA of the state, for selling land to Fulani herdsmen,

The Kano Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, in 2019 had created four new Emirates, which Karate is one of them.

The statement was released by Haruna Muhammad Gunduwawa, the spokesperson of the emirate, which announced the suspension of the village head.
