Ogun State government said on Wednesday all Nigerians, including herdsmen, are free to enter the state provided they are law-abiding. The government also directed local government areas where there are herdsmen and farmers crises to embark on enumeration of residents and visitors to know the people in the area.

The Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Taiwo Adeoluwa, stated these during chat with journalists after the States’ Security Council meeting held at the Governor’s Office, Oke – Mosan, Abeokuta.

He also warned that the government would not hesitate to invoke the recently passed anti – land-grabbing law to curtail the menace of herdsmen in the state.
