Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has banned grazing and rearing of cattle in the State, saying those interested in cattle farming should get their own private cattle ranch.
Fayose who made this known when he visited Oke-Ako in Ikole local government area of the State,following last Friday’s invasion by Fulani herdsmen, which left two residents killed and others injured, disclosed that a bill to make movement of cattle from one location to another criminal in the State would soon be sent to the State House of Assembly.
Governor Fayose, however, warned that government will henceforth confiscate any cattle seen anywhere in the State apart from ranches created for them by their owners.
He described the Fulani herdsmen that attacked Oke-Ako and other communities in the country as
“agents of the devil that must be fished out and punished accordingly.”
