Speaker of Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, says plans are underway to legislate on animal husbandry and related activities through the enactment of an all-inclusive law on anti-open grazing in the State.

The speaker said the law was to put in place measures towards stemming the incessant herders/farmers clashes in the State.

Oluomo said this during a parley with executive members of the State Coalition of Civil Societies led by its Chairman, Yinka Folarin at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

The speaker recalled that stakeholders, including some northern leaders, had openly condemned “the uncontrolled wandering of cattle”, which had resulted in series of attacks and criminal activities associated with herdsmen/farmers’ clashes across the State, especially in the Yewa axis.

He noted that the Assembly had equally finalised plans to engage relevant stakeholders through public hearings to put in place laws for the creation of an agency for the collection and maintenance of database for all residents in the State.
