Governor Ayodele Fayose has caused a stir when he chased some cows led by Fulani herdsmen. Fayose had signed into law a bill which prohibits the grazing of cattle in the southwest region by herdsmen. Daily Post reports that Fayose appended his signature on Monday, August 29 in front of an audience of about 3,000 traditional chiefs in Ekiti state. However, in a post shared by Lere Olayinka, he said the Ekiti state governor came across the herdsmen along
Afao Ekiti road in Ado Ekiti.One of the cows was arrested as the herdsman fled into the bush. Read the post below:
As Governor Fayose was going to Ikole Ekiti today, he came across herdsmen along Afao Ekiti road, Ado Ekiti. The governor demonstrated the seriousness of the State Anti Grazing Law by personally seeing to it that one of the COWS was “arrested” by youths who chased the cows after the herdsmen ran into the bush upon seeing the governor’s security men. The remaining cows ran into the bush too. Ekiti Grazing Enforcement Marshall (EGEM) will start work in few days time.
