10:49 Feb 23 2017 Bayelsa, Nigeria

The chairmen of the restoration caucus in the eight local government areas of Bayelsa State have thrown their weight behind Governor Seriake Dickson over the designation of the land around the Bayelsa palm area as a grazing site for herdsmen and their cattle.

The chairmen after a‎ closed-door meeting with Governor Dickson, described the designation of the area for grazing activities, as a strategic security move to enable the government restrict the activities of herdsmen and monitor them.

The leader of the group , Chief Thompson Okorotie, restated that, the government has not sold any land to the cattle rearers, but rather took the decision to confine them to a particular area, to avoid clashes between herdsmen and farmers in the state, as witnessed in some parts of the country.
