The Governor expressed concerns that herdsmen were allowed to carry sophisticated weapons more than security agencies.

He said that herdsmen are not coming for grazing but for interiors, adding that Nigeria is no longer in the 50s and 60s when cows were grazing for free.

“Anti- open grazing prohibition law is still in force and anyone who wants to do business of animal husbandry must embrace ranching,” the Governor declared.
