Governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose, Thursday led armed security men and some youths to arrest one of the cows that were grazing along Ado-Afao road.
This is in demonstration of the governor’s determination to enforce the anti-grazing law that he signed into law recently.
The governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, told journalists that the two herdsmen grazing the cows ran into the bush while youths pursued the cows and got one of them arrested.
Olayinka said; “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.”
The governor’s spokesperson also disclosed that the Ekiti Grazing Enforcement Marshalls (EGEM) will start work in few days’ time.
