Ibrahim Ali, commander of operation Safe Haven (OPSH), gave the warning during a meeting with stakeholders from Riyom LGA of the state.

Ali said grazing must end by 6pm, warning that anyone caught violating the directive would be dealt with.

“Night grazing must stop; grazing must stop by 6pm,” he said.

“Underage grazing too must stop. Desist from asking your children to graze without attaching them with adults.

“Anybody caught violating this directive will be dealt with.”

The commander also warned against destruction of crops on farmlands and cattle rustling, saying that the task force would not spare anyone caught in the act.

“Do not go to peoples farm to graze, that’s criminal. Anyone who deliberately grazes on farmlands will be arrested and dealt with,” he said.

“Also, those who rustle cows should henceforth stop because we will come after them.”

He also urged community leaders to desist from shielding criminals in their domain.

“As community leaders, I want to urge you to expose criminals in your domain.That is the only way we can address all these security challenges we are facing,” Ali said.

He called on residents of the state to support and cooperate with his officers.
