“No land in the South-east has been donated for ranching. We have not donated any land; we have not been asked to donate and we are not going to donate.

The forum also condemned the recent killings in Plateau State.

“We condemn the killings and join other regions to demand justice for the Plateau people.

“South-east governors have noticed increased challenges in the movement of herdsmen from one state and region to another with the resultant effect of massive destruction of farmlands with attendant clashes with farmers.

“South-east governors have been spending huge funds in settling farmers whose farms and crops are destroyed – we, therefore, request an emergency meeting in the South-east with federal security chiefs, farmers and herdsmen to stop the movements and prevent clashes,”OKOROCHA
