Just In: Fulani herdsmen sue Oyo gov’t over anti-open grazing law



FULANI herders in Oyo State have filed a suit against the state government and the State House of Assembly saying an anti-grazing law recently passed is a gross violation of their fundamental rights.



The herders under the aegis of Gan Allah Fulani Development Association of Nigeria also joined the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in the state in the suit.


The law which had been debated, passed and signed into law by the executive arm was aimed at checking persistent farmers-herders clash in the state.
