Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has blamed the incessant herdsmen/farmers conflict on the scarcity of resources for grazing.

He stated this during the 2018 World Congress of the International Press Institute (IPI) in Abuja, the nation’s capital on Thursday.

He said, “The herdsmen clash with farmers is an issue of resources getting more and more scarce. There is less water, there is less grass. The farmers would not have the kind of land they used to have before so they have to adopt the best practices in Agriculture and modern technology.
