Arms Proliferation: Herdsmen And Farmers Carry AK-47, Gov Lalong Laments

Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong has lamented over the rise in arms proliferation in the country noting that both herders and farmers now carry AK-47 in self-defence.

He said the alarming trend can be curtailed if the Federal Government introduces the modern form of livestock production which is in the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP).

“At the time there were farmers-herdsmen clashes here (in Plateau), we arrested people, farmers also had AK-47 and the herdsmen were also holding AK-47 too.
