200 cows, 2 herdsmen arrested by Amotekun in Ondo


Two herdsmen have been arrested by the Ondo State Security Network known as Amotekun Corps for using their cows to destroy crops at Irese, Ifedore Local Government Area of the state.

Also, 200 cows that destroyed the crops were arrested and taken to the headquarters of the Amotekun Corps in Akure.

The two herders – Muhammed Abu and Musa Saliu- said they came into Ondo from Ilorin, Kwara State.

It was gathered that a farmer in the community alerted the Amotekun Corps after the herders allegedly attempted to shoot another farmer for asking them to leave his farm.

Ondo Amotekun Commander, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, warned that any herder who breached the open grazing order of the state government would be arrested and prosecuted.

Adeleye stated that the head of Fulani group would be invited to identify the cows and the owners for further action.

Amotekun Corps also nabbed three suspected pipeline vandals in Ore, Odigbo Local Government.

The names of the suspects were given as Mushood Agboola, Taye Akande, and Gbenga Akinluyi.

Adeleye said his men while on patrol laid ambush for the suspects after noticing some cuts in the pipeline area.
