Akeredolu Insists Open Grazing Ban
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo has restated that his government has not lifted the ban placed on open grazing in the state.
The Governor disclosed this while hosting the new Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) in charge of zone 17 in Akure, Ondo state capital, Ene Okon, in his office.
Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu while receiving the new AIG, said the ban on open grazing is still in place.
He said a bill has been sent to the state House of Assembly to ensure that the ban turns into law.
The Governor added that the law will be enforced when finally put in place.
He also explained that the Amotekun Corps was not established to compete with other security agencies but to complement their efforts in tackling security challenges.
Commending the Governor's gesture, the new AIG said Governor Akeredolu has laid a solid foundation for community policing with the creation of the security outfit.
Okon further lauded the state governor for his doggedness in the creation of the State Security Network codenamed ‘Amotekun’.
