Lagos State Seized 30 Caws, Warns Herdsmen Of Illegal Grazing

Concerned about the safety of the residents in the state, the Lagos State government yesterday seized 30 cows and 10 rams found straying and grazing illegally on the road within Lekki axis, and has warned herdsmen to desist from grazing their cattle on the roads.

Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Olayiwola Onasanyait who gave the warning in an interview with Vanguard said the government has zero tolerance for such action in the state.

Onasanya said: “If the owners come, they will pay fines to the government. We ensure that they don’t return to such act. We have a taskforce on ground to ensure that such doesn’t occur in the state. We are concerned about the safety of the residents in the state.
As a government, we have not relaxed any of our laws and that is why we have urged residents to alert us whenever they see any infringement. We assure them that within 48 hours, such would be cleared.”
