Anti-grazing law: Lagos to establish enforcement team


It has emerged that the Lagos State government will establish an enforcement squad to enforce its anti-grazing law amid the unlikelihood of the police force to run the rule over defaulters.

This is as the federal government declared support for the planned action of Miyetti Allah to take legal recourse against states that have the anti-grazing laws.

 “The Nigerians whose rights are violated reserve the right to approach the court for the protection of such rights within the context of freedom of movement among others. It will be viewed with that consideration in mind,” the Special Assistant (Media) to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Dr Umar Gwandu told

The medium said Lagos has its plan against police shunning the law enforcement and quoted an unnamed source as saying, “There is an enforcement team to be established by the state government to enforce the law and when the enforcement team is established, the police will provide security during enforcement.”
