Yoruba Nation agitators under the aegis of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS), have threatened to parade an unprecedented protest in states that give room for grazing reserves in the Southern region of the country.

According to them, Governors in the Southern Region that welcome the Federal Government's Grazing Reserves policy, or cede an inch of their ancestral land to the central government for Fulani herdsmen grazing reserves, should be ready to face the wrath of the people. They added that, the grazing route is an attempt towards grabbing their ancestral land through the back door, therefore must be rejected by all necessary means.

NINAS which is headed by Professor Banji Akintoye and Tony Nnadi, Secretary-General, is the coordinating platform, for the umbrella bodies of self-determination groups in the South and Middle Belt of Nigeria with Ilana Omo Oodua representing the South-West, Lower Niger Congress representing the South-South, South-East and Middle Belt Renaissance Movement representing the Middle Belt Region.

Recall that, President Buhari, on 19th August, 2021, approved a controversial review of 368 grazing reserves across 25 states in the country.
