According to him, part of the agreement was that “unarmed herdsmen from Nasarawa State would be allowed entry into Adapati Island in Agatu to graze their cow and not for the purposes of residence.

“It also provides that no herdsman is allowed to graze beyond the Island while they would be held accountable for destruction done to any farmland or produce within or in any nearby Island other than Adapati.

“Moreover herdsmen would not be allowed to cross to Agatu hinterland until normalcy is restored and by extension neither Agatu nor the herdsmen will be allowed to carry arms and dangerous weapons to the area.”

The incidence of attacks by herdsmen on communities across the country had spiked since the coming of the Buhari-led administration, with the recent tragedy in Southern Kaduna being the most talked about. Over 800 persons are said to have lost their lives so far in the skirmishes.
