Governor Fayose, who condemned the herdsmen attacks on residents “at the slightest provocation”, also ordered them to register with N5,000 in their host communities for identity and location.

None of our people must be killed by your men, either they are strangers or those herdsmen living among us. If any killing or destruction of farms of our people occurs again in that area, I will ensure that I use the law to fight you their leader on it. This is the last warning I am giving you,” he warned.
The Ekiti State Governor, who confirmed this report in tweets, also disclosed that he will be promoting an executive bill to the House of Assembly, proposing a five-year jail term for anybody found guilty of harbouring ‘killer’ herdsmen in the state.
