— Anti open grazing law will be enforced vigorously
—- No bandit will operate under any dubious guise
— its arrogance, indulgence has taken too far to seek to take over people’s lands

Chairman of the Southern Governors Forum, Rotimi Akeredolu has tackled the Fulani Socio-Cultural Association, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, for opposing the enactment of anti-open grazing law by governors in the region saying that no cultural practice permitted criminality, banditry, rape and armed robbery.

Akeredolu declared that the anti-open grazing law would be enforced vigorously.

Recall that the Fulani Socio-Cultural Association had during the week called on the National Assembly to intervene and stop attempts by some state governors to enact anti-open grazing laws targeted at Fulani pastoralists.

Its National Secretary of the association, Mr Saleh Alhassan said the law would undermine the relative peace and stability currently enjoyed in the local communities, threaten the social order and exacerbated cattle rustling
