Governor Ayo Fayose has signed the Ekiti state Open Grazing Prohibition Bill into law. He signed the law this afternoon in the presence of over 3,000 Traditional Chiefs in the state. Under the law, herdsmen are forbidden from carrying arms.

They are also prohibited from grazing their cattle in areas that are not designated for grazing. The law prescribes six months imprisonment without option of fine for any herdsman who violates the grazing prohibition while any herdsman found with arms will be charged with terrorism.
