Four persons reportedly died with properties destroyed in the clash that happened in Bara-kuta, Bosso Local Government Area on Friday.
Director General of NSEMA, Malam Ahmed Inga, disclosed this in Minna, the state capital, on Tuesday.
He revealed that the IDPs were being resettled in a school in Bosso, while plans were on towards returning them to their homes.
“The State Government has established links with the herdsmen and the farmers toward restoring lasting peace in the area to enable the Gwagyis go back to their homes and attend to their farms.
“We have to do everything possible to make sure that peace returns to the community to ensure the security of lives and property.”
Inga said the peace talk between the herdsmen and the farmers was being brokered by the state’s Commissioner for Sports Development, Alhaji Mamman Bosso, the Emir of Minna, Alhaji Umaru Bahago as well as security agencies.
He noted that 167 houses were destroyed while 17 motorcycles and other property were destroyed during the clash.
