JUST IN!! Fulani Herdsmen, Amotekun Clash In Ondo

 

Fulani herdsmen have attacked the Ondo State Security Network Agency, Amotekun, on Wednesday, on a farm at Osi Community, in Akure North Local Government Area of the state.

Weetalknaija.com.ng gathered the herdmens attacked the operatives while they were trying to settle a rift between them and the farmers in the community.

The operatives of the agency were said to have moved to the community, following a distress call from the farmers that cows had destroyed their farms in the area.

The state Commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, who disclosed this to journalists in Akure, the state capital, however, said one of the herdsmen was arrested with dangerous weapons while the operatives seized 16 cows.

He stated, “Some farmers from Osi Community ran to the office complaining that herds had destroyed their farms.

“We sent our men there to assess the situation. They found out that the herds were actually on the farm and we invited the herdsmen.

“But unfortunately, on getting there, they attacked our men with knives and other dangerous weapons. But we were able to arrest one of them, named Abdulkadir Mohammed.”

Adeleye also disclosed that his men arrested two suspected cattle rustlers while a NISSAN Serena marked LAGOS FJ 423 KRD, brought by the suspected rustlers to steal cows belonging to one Alhaji Ilyasu, was impounded.
