Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has sounded the alarm over alleged plans by some persons to launch attacks in the state.
The governor said that the attacks would be in retaliation for the recently signed law banning open cattle grazing in the state.
Akeredolu made this statement while receiving a team of Pastors from the Deeper Life Church, on Tuesday.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary on, the governor said that some disgruntled persons were not happy with the ban but insisted that he would stand by his decision to protect the lives of farmers in his domain.
According to him, the ban was not targeted at anyone in particular.
He also noted that the state chapter of the Miyetti-Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria has declared its readiness to cooperate with his administration on the open grazing ban.
Akeredolu urged the Pastors to intensify their prayers for his administration as some people have begun planning evil against the state.
He reiterated his commitment to stand by the newly signed law, no matter the cost.
Ondo is one of the 17 States in the Southern region that has recently imposed a ban on open cattle grazing. The move was initiated to help end the crisis between Fulani herdsmen and farmers across the region.
The decision, however, was met with serious criticism from various quarters, especially the North.
