The law recommends a 21-year jail term for gun-wielding herdsmen in the state.

Lagos State has joined 12 other states, including Ondo, Ekiti, Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Rivers, Cross River, Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom, Ebonyi and Abia, to implement an earlier agreement by the southern governors in July to ban open grazing in the region.

Other states that are yet to implement the agreement includes Imo, Anambra, Delta and Edo States.
