The Nigeria Police has declared its readiness to enforce the anti-open grazing laws as its pertain to each state of the Federation.

It also maintained that the civil society has the right to issue authorities to the security operatives in their states, in a bid to protest lives and property in their domain.

CSP Jimoh Moshood, the Force Public Relation Officer, made the statement Friday in an interview with Punch bordering on enforcement of the ban on open grazing in Benue State.

Moshoodmade the statement while responding to question on implementing the House of Representatives quest from President Muhammadu Buhari to order the security operatives to enforce the anti-grazing law, so as to stop the killings in Benue State by herdsmen.

His words: “On our part, the police have been enforcing all the laws as they concern the protection of lives and property. What I’m telling you is that the police are bound to enforce all laws (including the ban).

“It is the same people who say they are giving a directive that can say whether the police have been enforcing the ban or not.”

“If they are directing the IG, they have the constitutional right to give any directive to an agency over which they have an oversight. Nobody is denying that. They should be the ones to say whether we have been enforcing the ban or not.”
