The recent massacre which took place yesterday, December, 4, 2017, in the Lawaru and Dong communities saw people, mostly men butchered. It was a sharp contrast to a previous offensive that saw the killing of infants who had machete wounds on their heads.

States like Ekiti in south-west Nigeria have created restricted zones banning them from their pastoral activities involving the grazing of cattle. Governor Ayodele Fayose made sure to set up a law giving citizens of the state a right to shoot down any livestock found on their lands.
