IGP Wants Anti-Open Grazing Law Suspended To End Herdsmen-Fulani Crisis
The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has told the Senate that suspending the anti-open grazing laws passed by some states is one way to end deadly clashes between herders and farmers.
Idris said this when he appeared before the Senate Committee of Police.
A source at the meeting disclosed that the IGP told the committee that the cause of the crisis was the anti-open grazing law.
“He asked for stoppage of implementation of the law until ranches are provided, then the law can be gradually implemented again. He also asked for further equipping and funding for police to assist their work in the area and across the country,” the source added.
