Are Herders Who Flouted The Anti-Grazing Law In Ondo Trying To Enforce The Earlier Vows Of MACBAN?

Amid the open grazing ban that's gradually being actualized in the whole of the Southern region, a current report on ground has revealed how some Fulani herdsmen in Ondo State have recently flouted the law.

Recall that Governor Akeredolu of Ondo State who happens to be the first Southern governor to ban the open grazing system in his state had signed the law immediately after the deadline expired on September 1sth, and had the Amotekun security operatives enforce the provisions of the law.

However, amid the prevalence of the law in the whole of Ondo state these herders have chosen to ignore the law and continued to graze their cattle in some parts of the state which led to one of their cows attacking, and knocking down a commercial motorcyclist and his passengers. The report has it that the victims were immediately rushed to the nearest hospital as they sustained major injuries from the attack.

Now, putting the recent actions of these herders who have proven to be law-ignorant into consideration, my question is; Are these herders trying to enforce the earlier statement of Miyettti Allah that they would never observe the anti-grazing law in the South?

We all are aware of how the Miyettti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) after the earlier resolution of the Southern Governors Forum to ban open grazing had vowed that they would never recognize the law while describing it as satanic and discriminatory. However, considering the recent development that took place, I'm now forced to believe that these herders may have embarked on the act of open grazing again as regards the earlier pronunciation of Miyettti Allah that Fulani herdsmen would never recognize the anti-open grazing law.

What are your thoughts?
