The Bayelsa Government on Friday directed herdsmen to relocate their animals to the designated grazing site at the Bayelsa Palm area.
The directive followed the successful relocation of a group of herdsmen from the Ijaw National Academy in Kaiama, Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area of the state to the designated grazing site.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Security Matters, Chief Boma Spero-Jack, gave the directive in a statement issued in Yenagoa on Friday.
Spero-Jack stated that the directive has become imperative, because a number of herdsmen had refused to relocate to the grazing area.
While restating the government’s position, the Special Adviser stressed that the decision to create a grazing site was purely for security reasons, to avoid a possible breakdown of law and order.
