Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose has said that his administration will kill any cows caught wandering after 6 pm.

Fayose said further that the cows would be seized by the state’s Grazing Enforcement Marshals.

“On August 29, this year, the Anti-Grazing Bill was passed by the House of Assembly. I signed it into law on August 30.‎ Some people go as far as grazing in the night, when farmers are no longer on their lands,” he said.

“Any cattle found grazing after the time stipulated by the law would be confiscated. Such cattle would be sold or killed on the spot ‎and shared out to people, as part of our Stomach Infrastructure programme," he added.
