Two house committees are to also probe an alleged extrajudicial killing by Lagos police.
The House of Representatives has mandated its committee on agriculture to conduct public hearings aimed at fashioning a policy to minimize clashes between farmers and herdsmen.
Clashes between the two groups have killed many in several states.
The House decision followed a motion by Ossai Ossai (PDP-Delta), on the killing of 10 indigenes of Ogume community, Delta State, by some herdsmen.
Mr. Ossai said the attack took place on March 13 after a meeting between the community and the herdsmen.
The locals had asked the herdsmen to graze their cattle on areas not cultivated, after their herds had inflicted severe destruction on farm crops. The attack occurred after the meeting, the lawmaker said.
The house committee said the matter should be considered holistically alongside similar cases arising in many states.
Meanwhile, the House, which resumed from the Easter break on Tuesday, directed its committees on police affairs and human rights to investigate the alleged killing of one Chrisantus Okorie, by a policeman in Lagos.
The committees are expected to report back to the House within two weeks.
The resolution was sequel to a motion by Raphael Igbokwe (PDP-Imo), which was adopted when put to vote by the Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal.
Mr. Igbokwe said that an officer of the Nigeria Police Force allegedly killed Mr. Okorie on Thursday April 11, in Mushin, Lagos.
He said that the late Okorie hailed from Umuevu Village, Okirika-Nweke Autonomous Community, of Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo.
The lawmaker said it was more disheartening to the bereaved family that a spokesperson for the Lagos Police Command had described the victim as “a hired killer,” which necessitated the killing by the police.
