Men of the Ekiti State Anti-Grazing Marshall have arrested herdsmen whose cows destroyed some farms in Ijero Ekiti on Thursday.
The state governor, Ayo Fayose, disclosed this on Twitter, posting pictures of the suspects.
He also advised those interrested in cattle farming to get a ranch.
He tweeted: “Thanks to men of the Ekiti State Anti-Grazing Marshall that arrested these herdsmen that led their cows to destroy farms in Ijero Ekiti on Thursday. Here in Ekiti, we will continue to protect our farmers. If you are interested in cattle farming, get a ranch.
The arrest rides on the back of the law against open grazing in the state.
