Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State on Monday led the National Executive Council’s (NEC) sub-committee on tackling farmers/herdsmen crisis to Nasarawa and Benue States.

This comes after a committee of five state governors had been constituted and mandated to visit states affected by the crisis across the country.

The sub-committee was constituted last week by NEC headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to look into the crisis which has led to the deaths of dozens.

The Osinbajo-led committee, during its resumed sitting on Monday in Abuja, directed the sub-committee to hold consultations with stakeholders and interested parties in the affected states on how to end the conflicts.

The sub-committee, which has Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state as Chairman, would visit Benue, Taraba, Zamfara and Adamawa states, in order to understand the different dynamics of the conflict and develop long-term workable solutions.

Other governors who are members include Simon Lalong (Plateau), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Darius Ishaku (Taraba), and Bindo Jubrilla (Adamawa).
