Governor Ayo Fayose will tomorrow 20th of October, 2016, inaugurate the EKITI GRAZING ENFORCEMENT MARSHALLS (EGEM), for the total enforcement of the Anti-Grazing law. Checkout some of the drillings being carried out by the marshal officers at the training camp, which was personally witnessed by the Governor …
SO TRUE recalled that Mr. Fayose had in August signed the anti-grazing bill into law warning that any herdsman caught with arms or dangerous weapons in the state would be charged with terrorism and be made to face the law.
The highlights of the anti-grazing law goes thus:
“Grazing activities must be from 7am to 6pm on daily basis. The government shall allot certain portion of land to each local governments for grazing.
“Anyone caught grazing on portions of land or any farmland not allotted by government shall be apprehended and made to face the law.
“Any herdsman caught with firearms and any weapons whatsoever during grazing shall be charged with terrorism.
“Any cattle confiscated shall be taken to government cattle ranch at Erifun in Iworoko community.”
