JUST IN: 17 Southern governors resolve to ban open grazing of cattle
The governors of the 12 states in Southern Nigeria have resolved to ban open grazing of cattle in their states.
This was part of the 12 resolutions reached by the governors at their Tuesday meeting in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
Open grazing of cattle has often caused conflicts between host communities and migrant herders, leading to several deaths in many states.
Some of the herders have also been accused of committing other criminal acts like armed robbery, kidnappings and murder.
