The Coordinator of the Afforestation Project Unit (KTAPU) in the state, Alhaji Musa Hassan disclosed this to newsmen in Katsina.

Hassan said the unit had planted tree seedlings in some of the recovered forest reserves to curtail further encroachment.

According to him, plantations will be established in the remaining reserves to restore the natural environment.

The coordinator said the measure would prevent further clashes between farmers and herdsmen.

He advised farmers to desist from encroaching into the reserves, warning that the government would take appropriate action against such farmers.

Hassan urged traditional leaders and forestry officers to assist the state government in its efforts to protect the environment and ensure peaceful coexistence among communities living around the forest reserves.(NAN)
