The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has ordered the arrest of cattle found loitering the streets of Akure.
Akeredolu said the order was to reiterate his administration’s resolve to ban open grazing in the State.
The Governor disclosed this in a chat with TVC.
”We are banning open grazing. If I see a cow I will arrest it. They can’t move in Akure town. We wouldn’t allow it. It is not going to happen. We must put an end to it,” he said.
The governor’s decision followed recent criminal activities linked to herdsmen in the State.
