Some Fulani herdsmen have invaded the National Service farm at Dawhenya destroying five hectares of maize.
The Acting Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, Dr Michael Kpessa Whyte who expressed his indignation at the activities of the herdsmen noted they sometimes use offensive weapons to scare off the security guards on the farm.
Kpessa Whyte made the revelation when he joined some service personnel to apply fertilizer to the two hundred hectare maize farm at Dawhenya.
The scheme is also undertaking fish farming on the Dawhenya Lake with four cages currently holding 20,000 fingerlings of tilapia.
The farm has the potential to produce 6,000 bags of maize annually and 40,000 tilapia.
