According to the man speaking in the video, he claimed the Fulani herdsmen came with two buses into the the town with bags, but the Police didn't allowed them to check what is in their bags before they took them to the Police station, for further investigation.
The Youth Leader of Ado Ekiti Community, Chief Jacob Orisameka noted that they received a letter that Fulani herdsmen will be invading their community, and according to the directive they got from the Sole Yoruba Activist, Chief Sunday Igboho, they've been told to guide and protect their community against any invasion by Fulani herdsmen, so as to avoid the repetition of what happened in Igangan few days ago.
The youth leader further added that, "I'm using this opportunity to inform everybody in Ekiti to be extra careful, even though we've planned to go for rally tomorrow, which is June 12 but with the current situation now and directive from Sunday Igboho, we are now taking full responsibility to protect our town by ourselves. We've received letter that Fulani people are coming in mass. So, I want to implore all the youth in Ekiti to watch over their area and tomorrow, all the roads that lead to Ekiti will be shut down."
