Cattles around the Aso Rock
 
A video exclusively obtained and posted online by Premium Times on Thursday, shows herdsmen grazing their cattle around the Aso Rock presidential villa in Abuja, and along a road near the entrance to the vice president’s office, obstructing vehicular movements.
 
It was gathered that a journalist who stopped by to get a better view of the animals, was compelled by security agents to delete suspicious pictures and videos from his phone.
 
How the animals and their herders accessed the restricted area of upmarket Asokoro district were not ascertained as at the time of filing this report.
 
Indiscriminate movement of cattle in Abuja and other major Nigerian cities has been a subject of concern amid rising cases of clashes between herdsmen and farmers, as the Senate recently ordered the slaughtering of cows found roaming in the city centre, adding that owners of the cows should be fined N50,000 per cow.
 
The FCTA have also recently directed law enforcement agencies to enforce a total ban on cattle grazing, begging, street hawking and commercial motorcycle (Okada) in the FCT.
