We do not operate a conventional camp for them, they have been melting into the host community, sourcing immediate assistance from relatives and good samaritans,” he said.

Mr. Abdullahi said most of the fleeing herders have lost their means of livelihood and needed food and non-food items urgently. “But we have also observed that they are also suffering from psychosocial trauma and they, therefore, need psychosocial counseling. We will soon visit them and conduct a needs assessment of their situation to see where we can possibly assist them,” he said.

In a related development, the Director of Publicity, Kaduna State Chapter of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Ibrahim Bayero, has lamented over the plight of the herdsmen and described their condition as pathetic. Bayero said they have commenced mobilisation of members to see how they could assist the returnee herders.
