Anti-Grazing

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, recently had the anti-grazing bill passed into law to curb the practice of herdsmen rearing cows in cities; an act he has described as shameful.

This led to the establishment of the Grazing Enforcement Marshall, to enforce the Ekiti State Government’s Anti-Grazing Act, although their operations were suspended on Tuesday November 1 after issues were raised by the herders’ association, claiming that some of the animals were killed by the officials.

Fayose however denied claims that the marshals appointed to enforce the anti-grazing law‎ were shooting cows, while stating that the suspension was only temporary.

“The marshals are not armed. There is total misinformation about killing of cows, shooting of cows. It is pure political and misinformation.

“All I want is people obeying our laws and collaborating together in the overall interest of our state,” the Governor stated.
