Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), on Monday, said Kidnapers In Ondo forest reserve speak fulfuld. The governor spoke while featuring on channels Television's 'Politics Today' programme.

According to UNESCO Thesaurus, fulfulde is the language of the fulbe people also known as peul or Fulani, who are found throughout West Africa. There have been unrest in the South-West region of late over the activities of Fulani herders who have been accused of committing sundry crimes including killing, kidnapping, rape, and farm destruction. In a bid to sanitise the forest, Akeredolu had ordered herdsmen to vacate the Ondo state forest reserve or be registered with the ministry of agriculture in the state. The development had sparked controversy with the presidency saying the governor lacked the right to order the herdsmen to vacate the forest reserve.

Speaking on Monday, Akeredolu said, "What we had to address in Ondo state is essentially our discovery that some criminal elements were using our forest reserve to perpetrate crimes, and we said, look, we are not going to stay and just watch this happens".

"It is the order of the day that every person that is kidnapped is taken to this forest. Then, we must clear that forest of all criminals, we must clear all the criminals no matter who they are".

When asked specifically to name the language of the Kidnappers, Akeredolu said, "Most of them was speaking fulfulde, and there is no need to run away from it. This is a common language that is spoken across the length and breadth particularly in West Africa and North Africa. So if they come in, how did they come in?".

"Miyetti Allah does not have to defend these people if they are not their members. There is no need to defend them; let us treat them as what they are (criminals), and they (Miyetti Allah) themselves, should support us in getting them out" the governor added.
