Diverse reactions have been trailing the decision by the Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose to ban grazing and cattle rearing in the state.

Governor Fayose told hunters in Oke Ako – Ekiti state to defend themselves if attacked by Fulani herdsmen.

He also said anyone who desires to rear cattle in the state should get a ranch.

The Governor promised to make sure that the state House of Assembly passes a law that will ban grazing.

Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere also commended the Governor for taking what it called a bold step.

Another group from the South-East, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has praised Fayose for his courage.

IPOB also asked Governors in the South-East to also emulate the Ekiti state Governor, so the Fulani herdsmen menace can be nipped in the bud.

Fayose blamed President Buhari, who he referred to as  the patron of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, for not calling his people to order.
