In a solidified effort to tackle and finally tackle the ceaseless farmer-herder clashes in Ekiti, the state government would create enclosed ranching.
Leakblast reports that this is under the federal government’s National Livestock Transformation Plan.
Akin Omole, the information commissioner made the disclosure in a statement, on Monday, March 8.
According to Omole, the government noted it would not allow criminal herders who are hibernating in the farms to kill farmers and residents of the state.
It was gathered that the recent resolution emanated from the peace meeting between the leadership of Miyetti Allah and governors as regards the ban on underage, night, and open grazing in Ekiti state.
This development is coming a few days after Governor Fayemi paid a condolence visit to the families of two farmers killed in their farms by suspected herders in Isaba Ekiti.
The farmers, Toyin Akeju, popularly known as Jisoro, and Yusuf Onuche, were found dead on Saturday, March 6, on the farms with wounds from gunshots reportedly fired by some criminal Bororo herdsmen terrorising the state.
