Residents claim that the presence of the herdsmen and their cattle in the area pose threats to their farms and properties. According to them, the destructive activities of the herdsmen are affecting them physically and economically. Residents in those towns have complained that the Fulanis and their cattle have been destroying their crops and farmlands and have subsequently asked government to evict them or face their wrath.
