ABUJA—House of Representatives member, representing Kolokuma, Opokuma federal constituency in Bayelsa State, Douye Diri, has said the creation of state Police will curb famers herdsmen clashes in Nigeria.



Diri in a chat with journalists noted that “state Police will help us curb insecurity and finally stop all the issues surrounding anti-grazing laws at the state level.

“As for the fear that some people will manipulate the state police to achieve political gains, all I will say is no, as no governor will stay beyond eight years.

“If he manipulates the police in his first term, he stands the risk of being voted out of office, if he survives, the maximum is eight years and after that he becomes an ordinary citizen like you and I.”

On the clash between Benue citizens and herdsmen, Diri said: “International grazing routes in the 21st century is out of place when we have international best practices espoused in ranching as is done in civilised climes.”
