The Ogun State government has taken measures to avert a looming clash between Yoruba farmers and Fulani herdsmen in the state.

The measures, according to the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs,
Muyiwa Oladipo, are to avert possible crisis as over 25,000 cattle are expected to flood the state en-route Republic of Benin and northern parts of the country.

Part of the agreement reached at the
meeting were that the state government should look critically at the existing cattle routes, establish a strong control post and monitoring task force to checkmate the influx of cattle from the Republic of Benin and other neighbouring countries, create
grazing zones across the three senatorial districts of the state that would serve as encampment for the animals, support nomadic schools that would promote formal education and reduce child herdsman, and recognise the Sarki Fulani as part of the local government security council, which they believe would give them a sense of belonging.

The commissioner said that government would apply all necessary measures to prevent any outbreak of law and order in any part of the state, especially between Yoruba farmers and Fulani herdsmen, adding that the present administration would continue to pursue peaceful co-existence, tolerance, mutual understanding and brotherliness among the two communities.
