Governor Ayodele Fayose has signed the “Anti Grazing Bill 2016” which was recently passed by the Ekiti state House of Assembly into law.
The new law criminalises grazing in some places and certain time limit in the state. It was conceived following the killing of two men in a community during an attack by Fulani herdsmen.
“With the signing into law of this bill today, anyone caught grazing with arms or any weapon in Ekiti would now be charged with terrorism and be made to face the law according to certain sections of it,” Fayose said after signing the bill.
“The same goes for those who graze in prohibited areas or go against the time frame of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. allowed for open grazing,” he added.
