The federal government has confirmed the invasion of swarm birds and locust destroying farm produce in three northern states. 

The affected states are Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara.

The chief veterinary officer of the federation, Dr. Maimuna Habibu, Saturday said the reported cases of locusts’ invasion were particularly recorded in Zamfara and Kebbi states.

Dr Habibu said the ministry has already deployed officers to begin aerial attacks against the locusts in the affected states.

She said the federal government’s action followed complaints of destruction of crops from farmers in the affected states.
