The Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday dismissed a suit filed by the Miyyeti Allah Kautal challenging the 2017 Open Grazing Prohibition and Establishment Law passed by the Benue State House of Assembly.

The court also awarded a cost of N100,000 against the plaintiff to be paid to all the defendants before any other step can be taken in the suit.

The Miyetti Allah Kautal had approached the court seeking a mandatory injunction against the Benue State Government from implementing the laws as passed by the Benue State house of Assembly.

Delivering judgment on Thursday, Justice Okon Abang held that the failure of the plaintiff to comply with an earlier order of the court to amend their originating summon was a fault on their part.
