A socio-cultural group, Kiriji Heritage Defenders, has urged Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, to sign anti-open grazing bill recently passed by the state House of Assembly.

A statement by the Director General of the group, Dr. Ademola Ekundayo, on Sunday, said the bill, when signed into law would enable farmers to engage in farming activities without fear.

Ekundayo, also added that the law would protect lives and property and prevent incessant clashes between herders and farmers.

The statement read in parts, “The bill as passed has provided the state the backing to contain atrocities linked to the criminal herdsmen. When it becomes law, there will be needed constitutional cover for farmers, who are mostly victims of the nefarious activities of the criminal herders.”
