- Comedian Ali Baba has waded into the ongoing herdsman crisis in the country
- The entertainer while giving his two cents made reference to fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde, who also rears animals
- Ali Baba shared a video showing the musician’s effective method of cattle rearing in his Ogun-based farm
Veteran comedian Ali Baba is the latest public figure to share his two cents on the ongoing herdsman crisis which has rocked some parts of the country.
The respected entertainer recently took to his official page on Instagram with a post in which he made a reference to veteran fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde, who also rears cattle.
Ali Baba in his caption stated that ranching is not rocket science while condemning the actions of herdsmen who allowed their cattle to graze at the expense of other people’s livelihoods.
"Ranching is not rocket science. If you are allowing herdsmen to graze cows over people's farmlands and destroy their livelihoods while harnessing yours, you are an irrationally heartless human being."
To drive his point home, the comedian made a reference to the fuji musician who owns a farm and has an effective method of ranching in place.
Ali Baba said the musician never had to demand grants from the government to do the right things.
"Do the right thing. @k1deultimate did not have to ask government for grants or demand 100bn."
In the video that accompanied his post, Wasiu was spotted feeding cows on his farm which is situated at the Ijebu-Ode area of Ogun state.

Some followers agreed with the comedian in his comment section. Read what they had to say below:
"Their problem is laziness to go into the bush and cut grass for them to eat so they will rather walk long miles while the cows eat as they go plus wickedness that resides inside them."
"They’re just adamant for no just cause, no one practices open grazing anymore NEVER! Cow herding is a business, then invest and reap .. simple!"
"Please take a look at those cows looking well-fed and big, compared to their compatriots that would have travelled half the globe. Our mumu never done! "
"No life should be lost because something as simple as this! Let them do the necessary."
Here's what another Twitter user who posted the video had to say:
Earlier on, Legit.ng reported that Kano governor, Umar Ganduje, suggested a solution to the herder-farmer crisis in the country.
Ganduje said the movement of cattle and herders from the north to southern parts should be abolished.
He said a law should be made to this effect, adding that his government will build a Ruga settlement.
