Human Rights Writers Association of , HURIWA, has said that the refusal of Nigeria Force to enforce the anti-open grazing law only makes it (the police) look more of a Fulani agency.

The rights group, for this , called on governments to immediately the funding support to the police and instead, create a quasi policing body basically to enforce the anti-open grazing law.

HURIWA said it was angered that the police hierarchy has maintained what it (HURIWA) described as a conspiratorial silence over its willingness to prosecute violators of the law, even as more southern states to checkmate rising attacks on farmers by alleged armed Fulani herdsmen.

The rights advocacy group called on the Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Usman Alkali Baba to order the state commands of the Police to enforce the anti-open grazing laws in states where the of Assembly had passed the law or he should quit as the IGP of the Republic of Nigeria so he can head the Fulani Police Force.

HURIWA stated further: “This is a very dangerous threat to Nigeria’s security and it is even worst because the persons being misused to undermine the security of some states in the Federal Republic of Nigeria are policemen who according to the clear provisions of the constitution are bound to implement lawfully passed laws in all states of the federation and the Ethnic interest of the holder of the of President should not matter in the enforcement of the laws of Nigeria.

“It is disgraceful that Nigeria Police Force is now an institution led by Ethnic warlords who are affiliates of Fulani herders because showed that herders still graze their animals openly in many states that have enacted the anti-open grazing law without being intercepted by law enforcement agents.”
