Sanwo-Olu Signs Lagos Anti-Open Grazing Law

Babajide Sanwo-Olu has signed the Lagos anti-open grazing legislation to curb the deadly herdsmen crisis ravaging the country in his state.

Mr Sanwo-Olu signed the law on Monday at his office. The law was unanimously passed by the House of Assembly on September 9 with widespread approval of Lagosians.

Lagos has now become the latest southern state to adopt a law against open grazing of cattle by nomadic herdsmen of mostly Fulani origin.

Ondo, Ekiti, Akwa Ibom, Ogun and Delta, amongst several other southern states, have also passed similar laws.
