Melaye who gave the order in a speech read at the session, said it was very disappointing, annoying and embarrassing that inspire of the ban placed on cattle grazing in FCT by FCTA authority, some stubborn herdsmen still go about the city grazing their cows. He ordered the FCT Minister to go beyond the ban by facilitating the slaughtering order issued by the senate committee.

"The Senate is not happy at how herdsmen continue to move their cows across the city centre, which we are aware you had given directive against some time ago. From now on, get knives and ask your men to slaughter cows found in the capital city or prosecute herdsmen seen with cows in the city centre with a fine of N50,000 per cow. This order must be carried out.”
