Commissioner of Justice and Attorney General of Benue State, Michael Gusa, has said herdsmen are comfortable with the new Anti-Open Grazing law.

He said those who are opposed to the law were the Fulani herdsmen and others not resident in the state.

The commissioner told newsmen on Tuesday that such people were either ignorant of the provisions of the law or deliberately out to cause trouble.

Gusa said the law prohibiting open grazing does not in any way violate the provisions of the Nigerian Constitution.

He said: ”The law prohibiting the open grazing of livestock is not targeted at any tribe. Many of the herdsmen who want to remain in the state had complied with the law.

”Since the implementation of the law, no Fulani man living in the state has complained, except those in Abuja and other states.

”When Zamfara State enacted the Sharia law, those who could not live in conformity with it, left the state.”

The commissioner stated that the herdsmen must live in peace with the farmers or seek alternative abodes, if they cannot restrain their cows from destroying crops.
