Alaafin of Oyo Writes Open Letter to Buhari Over Fulani Herdsmen (NEWS)
The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has called the attention of President Muhammadu Buhari to the insecurity across the country and how Yoruba land is under siege by Fulani herdsmen.
“This has to do with the incessant and increasing menace of Fulani herdsmen that have laid siege in almost all the highways of Yoruba land. Whether in Owo, Akure, Ilesa/Ife-Ibadan road or Ibarapa zone and Ijebu area of Ogun State, the story is the same.
“I have held series of consultations with opinion moulders and eminent Yoruba leaders across board about the menace of these cattle herdsmen with such assault like raping of our women and in some occasions, in the presence of their husbands. That is apart from massive destruction of our agricultural lands; which ultimately points to imminent starvation,” the letter read in part.
