ICC Note: A Nigerian governor has passed a bill to his state’s assembly that would ban cattle grazing outside of privately-owned ranches. The measure comes as a response to at attack Friday in Ekiti State where radical Islamist Fulani cattle-herding militias murdered two people. The Fulani militia crisis in Nigeria rages on, having killed between 20,000 and 60,000 people since 2001. These mobs primarily target Christian-majority farming communities ranging from northern Nigeria across the “Middle-Belt” central region, even spanning into southern Nigeria recently.

5/24/16 Ekiti, Nigeria (AllAfrica) – Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has banned grazing and rearing of cattle in the State, saying those interested in cattle farming should get their own private cattle ranch.

Fayose who made this known when he visited Oke-Ako in Ikole local government area of the State, following last Friday’s invasion by Fulani herdsmen, which left two residents killed and others injured, disclosed that a bill to make movement of cattle from one location to another criminal in the State would soon be sent to the State House of Assembly.
