Due to recent killings and destroying of people's farmlands and properties, Ekiti, Ondo and Osun, deployed Amotekun in forest reserves and boundaries against herdsmen.

South west states, including Ekiti, Ondo and Osun have deployed Western Nigeria Security Network, Amotekun Corps, in their forest and boundaries to check the activities of killer herdsmen.

The information gathered from Sahara reports, Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu SAN, had issued seven-days ultimatum to herdsmen to vacate the state's forest reserves.

Although, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeder's Association of Nigeria, initially opposed the order, at a meeting its leaders had with Nigeria Governor's Forum and Akeredolu, of which the cattle breeder's accepted the Ondo state Government's directives.

Despite the order that herdsmen should vacate forest reserves, Akeredolu also banned cattle movement along the highways, and within the cities, night and underage grazing.

Meanwhile, other states in the South-west have also adopted the policy of Akeredolu, who is the Chairman of the South-west Governor's Forum.

The Commander, Ekiti Amotekun Corps, Brigadier General, Joe Komolafe (retd.) said operatives of the agency were working hard to ensure that forest and indeed the state are safe.

Komolafe the Commander said "we are carrying out patrols and monitoring of events. We liaise with the Amotekun Corps in Ondo and Osun state to tell us nature of movements in our forest and boundaries".

Do you think Akerodolu's policy is a way forward?
