Twitter Backs Fayose Over Ban On Grazing In Ekiti

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, yesterday, banned grazing of cattle in the state, saying those interested in cattle farming should get their own private cattle ranch. According to him, a bill to make the movement of cattle from one location to another criminal in the state would soon be sent to the State House of Assembly.

His announcement followed the attack by suspected Fulani Herdsmen on Oke-Ako in Ikole local government area of the State where two residents were killed. While he made the move to safeguard the lives and property of the people of his state, he was widely condemned by several sections of the political class and activists in the country. But Twitter welcomed the bold move.
