Bayelsa State Livestock Management Committee has charged three herders at a Magistrate’s Court in Yenagoa for violating the anti-open grazing law.  

Security operatives attached to the committee had arrested them last weekend for contravening the Livestock Breeding, Rearing and Marketing Regulations Law 2021, signed in February by Governor Douye Diri, which banned open grazing in the state.

Presiding Magistrate, Stanley Ekeru, in his ruling granted the three suspects bail with the sum of N200,000 each, with a clause that the bail would only be perfected by a surety who owns landed property and reside in the state.  

He also adjoined the case till December 21 for a hearing.
