“The herders stormed the Garin-Malam community, razed down one house and burnt down some farm produce belonging to the community.

“In the nick of time police rescued the situation, few people were arrested and the wounded ones hospitalized at the Federal Medical Center, Nguru.

“Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, Yahaya Abubakar has since deployed a large number of police personnel to maintain peace and prevent further escalation of the situation.
