There is now palpable tension at the border town of Ajowa-Akoko in Akoko North West Local Government Area of Ondo State as three truck loads of strange herdsmen from the Northern region stormed the town’s forest.
It was noted that the resident herdsmen in the area did not notify the traditional ruler or any other authority in the town for that matter before these men arrived.
It was also reported that the strange men sneaked into the town at night and were seen during the day by farmers.
Two farmers in the town, Soji Ogedengbe and Audu Badru who led others to the forest confirmed to Newsmen that they met many herders who couldn’t explain how they got to the area.
The leaders of the community as well as the head of the vigilante group expressed fear over the development and called on security agencies and the State Government to act quickly to avoid further trouble.
