The lawmakers also asked the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to send relief materials to those affected in the Oke Ako Ekiti community of Ekiti state.
Emmanuel Agboola, the lawmaker who moved the motion, said “Lives are randomly lost in these incessant attacks and sometimes in a dimension that is similar to genocide, just like the one at Oke Ako in Ekiti state.
“Certain states have already taken steps to stem the tide in a manner that suggests that the Federal Government is seemingly insensitive to this very worrisome development.”
Governor Ayo Fayose also banned the Fulani herdsmen from grazing in the state, following the alleged killings.
