Herdsmen Registration Starts In Ekiti

The Commissioner for Agriculture, Olabode Adetoyi has revealed that the Ekiti State government has started the implementation of the state’s anti-grazing law.

According to him, this has been put in place in order to curb the fight between herdsmen and farmers, and also to protect lives and properties.

Adetoyi revealed that the state government would start registering herdsmen and farmers in order to identify them and checkmate crime.

Stressing further, the commissioner said:

Ekiti State has anti-grazing law in place, which we have just dusted and begin to use. We are still going to follow it; no night grazing, no underage cattle rearing, no grazing on government restricted land like forest and our farm settlements and farm centres. Apart from these, there will be registration of the herders and farmers now in all our centres”.
