Following a skirmish between a herdsman and a native of Ugaga community of Yala local government area in late 2017, the state’s governor, Senator Ben Ayade had announced that the state is contemplating a “controlled grazing law” after he blamed the grazing prohibition law of neighboring Benue state as the cause of the problem at that community.
