Herdsmen Eviction: Akeredolu Meets Buhari

Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu met with President Muhammadu Buhari today at the State House to discuss the issues of insecurity and kidnappings in the Southwest especially Ondo State in particular.

This was contained  in a statement issued by the Ondo State Information Commissioner, Donald Ojogo, after the Governor’s meeting with the President.

According to the statement, Gov. Akeredolu got the permission of the President to flush out the miscreants in  the forests of Ondo State.

It was a huge opportunity for the governor to put the records straight as regards the erroneous impression that Governor Akeredolu had asked all Fulani and herdsmen to vacate the state”, the statement read in part.

It was a huge opportunity for the governor to put the records straight as regards the erroneous impression that Governor Akeredolu had asked all Fulani and herdsmen to vacate the state.

“The meeting afforded both leaders a great window to explore ingenious methods to tackle the issue of insecurity in the region.

“In particular, Governor Akeredolu sought and, indeed, obtained the President’s support and encouragement to flush out criminals in the forests of Ondo State.”

The issue of kidnappings and clashes between herders and farmers in the Southwest zone has gotten to a climax and has seen the Governor of Ondo State earlier issued a 7days ultimatum to all herders to vacate the forest of Ondo State.
