The Ekiti State government has said it is set to conduct registration for herdsmen in the state.
While speaking to newsmen over the weekend, Sola Durodola, the Coordinator of the State Anti Grazing Task Force Marshals, disclosed this.
He explained that this move was extremely necessary to monitor herdsmen attack on farmers and residents.
He revived that the registration of the herdsmen would enable the government to know the number of herdsmen and be able to track any criminal act carried out by any of them in any part of the state.
Sola Durodola said “Government will not fail in its duty to ensure security of lives and property and this is to assist us to differentiate law abiding herdsmen from criminals.
“Modality for the registration of herdsmen will soon be out and we want every stakeholder to cooperate with government to ensure that peace reigns in our state.
“No herdsman will be allowed to kill our people, destroy farm produce and attack innocent farmers in pursuit of their trade.”
