The Ondo State Security Network, also known as AMOTEKUN Corps has arrested three herdsmen and 56 cows for violating the Anti-Open Grazing law.
Recall that the State Governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu last week approved the bill by signing it law, after passing first and second reading in the State House of Assembly.
The herdsmen and the cows were arrested at Awara, a farm settlement in the Ikare axis of the headquarters of Akoko North-East local government area of the State.
While disclosing this to Newsmen at the Agency’s Headquarters in Akure, the State capital, the Commander of Amotekun Corps, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, said that the suspects have been told to pay the stipulated fines stated in the Anti-grazing law.
The Seriki Hausa of Akungba Akoko, Alhaji Idris Jumil Ismaila, however, appreciated the state Governor, for allowing them to settle out of court and promised to sensitise his people on the implications of violating the anti-open grazing law.
