A Yoruba nation security network, Amotekun, Ondo State Command has arrested three herdsmen and 40 cows for allegedly destroying some farmlands in Owode community, Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Chief Adetunji Adeleye,
the state commander of the corps, disclosed this while addressing the press in Akure, the state capital on Friday.
The commander said, “We got distress calls from farmers and residents of Owode, a community very close to the Akure Airport that cows are persistently destroying their farmlands.
“We went there three times to educate them on how to do their businesses without destroying other peoples’ farmlands.
It got to a time when there was a threat and a new dimension to it which got us into action. The cows have been impounded, while three herders were apprehended as investigation is still ongoing.”
