Northern Christian Forum Raises Alarm Over Imminent Food Crisis

The Northern Christian Forum (NCF) has called on the Federal Government to map out plans to forestall food crisis in the country due to herdsmen and farmers’ clashes.

President of NCF, Anambra State chapter, Averson Andrew noted this in Nnewi over the weekend.

He said, “Nigerians cannot survive on meat alone, we equally need farm produce to balance our diets but with the wanton destruction of lives and property going on across the country, occasioned by unscrupulous and blood-thirsty killer herdsmen, we must say there is real threat of hunger.

“These incessant, senseless, barbaric and unwarranted killings have put the All Progressives Congress, APC, government diversification policy into jeopardy as many farmers have been displaced, homeless and could no longer carry out their farming activities due to incessant attacks from the rampaging and marauding herdsmen.

“We wish to warn that this dastardly activities of the rampaging killer herdsmen  alleged to be mainly Fulanis would inadvertently swell the already swollen unemployment market as the present development would adversely affect agro-allied industry.”
