Recall that over the past few months, there have been reports of farmers/herdsmen crisis in various states of the South- West geopolitical zone. On several occasions, the crisis between these criminal herdsmen and farmers had resulted in lots of casualties, including loss of lives, destruction of farmlands as well as other properties.

Most Nigerians reacted to the open grazing of cattles by these herdsmen, calling for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari as well as Governors of states in the South- West to ban the grazing of cattles in the open.

In the light of the prevailing issue, the group, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has reacted to the ban imposed on open grazing by Governors of the South- West.


Recall also that the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), had agreed with Governors of the South- West on the 25th day of January 2021, that all herdsmen in the state would be registered, and the activities of open grazing would be regulated.

While having a press briefing with journalists yesterday, 6th March 2021, reports state that the Secretary of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Saleh Alhassan, had disclosed that a ban in open grazing by herdsmen is equivalent to issuing herdsmen with quit notice orders from the states.

“They can’ t put an end to open grazing by fiat because grazing is not motorcycle business; there must be an alternative. Secondly, if they say they are going to end open grazing, what is the timeline for it? ” , Saleh Alhassan said.


He added that from the days of Moses, grazing has been done in the open. He also disclosed that the Governors ought to have known that they can’ t what they want on the issue of placing a ban on open grazing. While speaking on the National Livestock Transformation Plan, he stated their support for the movement, wherein he called it a welcome development.

He added that the displacement of herdsmen from their source of livelihood is similar to evicting them from those states. He described it as an unfortunate phenomenon.
