The Ogun State Government has expressed concern over the “25,000 cattle brought into its territory by Fulani herdsmen via  Benin Republic and Northern Nigeria”.
The state commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Muyiwa Oladipo, raised the alarm in Abeokuta during a peace  meeting with herdsmen and community leaders.

He noted that the  influx of cattle in the state was as a result of its rich  pasture, but quickly added that government will check the influx.

Mr. Oladipo said the government would establish a strong control post and monitoring task force to checkmate the mass movement of cattle from neighbouring Republic of Benin and other neighbouring countries.

The meeting however  noted that the state government should create grazing zones across the state for the animals.

The commissioner said government had taken drastic measures to avert looming clashes between farmers and herdsmen in the state.

However, a consensus was reached at the meeting that  government should support nomadic schools that would promote formal education and reduce the use of child labour by herdsmen.

It was also agreed that government should recognise the Seriki Fulanis as part of the Local Government Security Council, to give them a sense of belonging.
