Our people Have Abandoned Their Farms To Avoid Being Killed By Fulani Herdsmen – Ondo Residents
Residents of Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State have said they can no longer go to their farms for fear of being killed, raped or kidnapped by Fulani herdsmen.
They claimed the recent killing of a vigilante and an informant of the Ondo State Security Network, better known as Amotekun, by herdsmen has created tension in the area with some residents fleeing the community.
A resident of the community told SaharaReporters that the forest reserve area in Owo is now a no-go area as gunmen have taken over the area.
He said, “A lot of things are happening in this area; this is the same area where they killed the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Isreal Adeusi. Unfortunately, the police are now inviting chiefs of that town to Abuja to come and explain why they killed a cow. When the monarch was murdered, nobody was invited.
