Fulani Herdsmen Invades Ondo Community

The once peaceful town of Akunnu-Akoko community of Ondo State has been tensed and unsettled as a result of an alleged herdsmen invasion.

According to the report gathered by Nigeria News, the said invasion was brought to the notice of the community leaders by the vigilantes on patrol yesterday night.

The herdsmen which were conveyed in four truck arrived at the community which is located in Akoko North East Local Government Area of the State.

The herdsmen which were said to have come on invitation by one of them Dayo Bello came from Iseyin in Oyo state.

The incident was confirmed by The Chairman, Akunu Akoko Progressive Union, Mr. Tunde Bayode, who said “This may be an attempt to engage our land in Fulani colony as proposed by the federal government.”

Bayode who was not in support of the incident said “We are calling on relevant authorities to come to our rescue and chase these Fulanis away. They are known to be arsonists, rapists, and killers. We don’t want our land to be used for Fulani colony. This is unaccepted to us and they must leave our community,”

The youths of the community who saw that no major reason was given to the community leaders by their visitors have been protesting and calling on the herdsmen to relocate.

The chairman, Akoko North East Local Government Area, Mr. Rafiu Eniayewu is said to have tried to calm the people of the community down and ensure that they don’t take laws into their hands by moving round the community in company of security agents.

The Police Area Commander in charge of the area, Mr. AbdulRauf Abduirazak has confirmed the police involvement in the issue and assured the people of the community that the movements and actions of the herdsmen are monitored.
