Southwest governors move to tame herdsmen over insecurity


Following the recent attacks experienced by Southwest people in the hand of Fulani herdsmen, governors from the region have announced their readiness to curtail the menace.

The governors made this known after a meeting held at the Ondo State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja on Friday.

Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu in a statement after the meeting said “There’s an urgent need to stem the growth of criminal activities and banditry in our region and, as leaders, we must be proactive in our approach to addressing the issue.”

The meeting which was attended by Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu; Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi; Oyo State Governor, Mr Seyi Makinde; and Osun State Governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, unanimously adopted Akeredolu as the chairman of the South-West Governors’ Forum.

Recall that various Yoruba groups, elders and leaders in recent time had lampooned the lackadaisical attitude of the Federal Government towards the invasion, and unprovoked attacks by herdsmen across the country especially in the South-West.

The Yoruba Council of Elders, YCE, Afenifere, Agbekoya Farmers’ Association, Soludero Hunters Association, the South- West Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and the All Progressives Congress, APC, were among those who expressed misgivings about the nefarious activities of herdsmen particularly in the South-West.

The groups also expressed worry over the herdsmen’s incursion in the region, submitting that the region is under siege.
