The Emir of Wase, Muhammad Haruna, has said that Plateau State risks food crisis as insecurity has driven many farmers away to the cities.

He said terrorists have taken over 50 per cent of the landmass in Wase Local Government Area.

According to him, the people can no longer go to their farms.

The first-class monarch spoke on Thursday in Jos, the Plateau State capital, at a colloquium and fundraising organized by the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Plateau State Council.

“A lot of us leave the villages to the city to look for greener pastures because we cannot afford to go to our farms.

“This is not because we are lazy to be given fish. If the atmosphere is conducive for us to work on our farms, the number of people in the city will reduce because they will go back to the villages.

“We want to farm because of the vast land we have which God has blessed us with. There is basically nothing you cannot farm in Wase.

“Unfortunately, 50 per cent of the landmass has been taken over by terrorists. Our people cannot go to the farm,” he stated.
