Apex Yoruba soci-cultural organisation Afenifere has hailed what it described as “the courageous move by the Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, to ban cattle grazing in the state.”

A statement issued Monday afternoon by Afenifere National Publicity Secretary Yinka Odumakin said: “The action of the governor is a timely move to strengthen the civilization that places higher premium on human lives above cows.

“We have sacrificed enough blood in the unending cycle of bloodletting by Fulani herdsmen the latest being those killed in Ekiti two days ago.

“The responsible action of the governor should jolt the Federal Government that has appeared largely indifferent to the murderous activities of the Fulani herdsmen to act responsibly over this matter.

“We fully endorse this action which is in conformity with the resolution of the 2014 National Conference that cattle breeders must embrace RANCHING as against grazing reserves being canvassed in certain quarters.”
