Governor Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State yesterday announced the establishment of a committee to work for the recovery of over 10,000 cows that got missing during the recent communal crisis in the state.
He announced this during a meeting with leaders of the Fulani ethnic group in the state at his private residence in Lafia.
Al-Makura said the committee would be saddled with the responsibility of recovering all the missing cows across the state.
Some parts of the state, particularly Nasarawa South Senatorial District, have been enmeshed in communal crisis since June last year.
In the crisis, many people were killed, property worth several millions of naira were destroyed, while thousands of cows got missing.
Al-Makura assured the leadership of the Fulani group that the committee would handle the assignment efficiently, adding that the necessary logistics would be given to the committee to make its assignment easier.
