UGHELLI—DELTA State House of Assembly has embarked on moves to curb the excesses of herdsmen in the state, following the presentation of the Anti-Grazing bill which has just concluded public hearing on same.
Shedding light on the bill, yesterday, in Ughelli during a security summit organised by the Ughelli ‘A’ Division of the state police command, the member representing Ughelli Constituency 1 in the state House of Assembly, Mr. Samuel Mariere, hinted that when passed into law, the bill will checkmate the menace of herdsmen in the state.
He said: “Once passed, all lands given for grazing by any individual in the state become illegal. There would be a committee charged with the mandate of giving land to herdsmen and it would be illegal for any of these herdsmen to graze outside their authorized land.”
