We’re under attack by herdsmen, Ondo community cries out

Residents of Ajowa community in Akoko North West Local Government Area of Ondo State, yesterday, raised the alarm over the unending criminal activities of herdsmen in their community.

It will be recalled that, last week, residents of three communities—Ijagba, Imoru, Arimogija, in Ose council area of the state, fled their communities to neighbouring towns and villages, over incessant attack by suspected herdsmen.

The traditional ruler of the town, the Oloso of Oso Ajowa, Oba Jimoh Omoola, was recently abducted and spent 10 days in captivity before regaining his freedom.

Other monarchs in the neighbouring communities in Akoko, contributed the ransom paid to his abductors before he was released.

However, the spokesperson of Ajowa community, Mr Jaco Adegoke, at a town hall meeting to discuss the activities of the herdsmen, narrated a bitter experience of residents in the last two years.

Adegoke said: “Our experiences in the hands of these criminals in the last two years are unimaginable.
