LAGOS JANUARY 23RD (NEWSRANGERS)-Residents of Owobamigbe Farm settlement, along Ileyo Isagba road, Akure in Akure North local government area of Ondo State flee from the village over fear of attack by herdsmen.

It was gathered that there was a face off between a cassava farmer in the village who met some herdsmen on his farm, harvesting cassava to feed their cattle.

One of the farmers, Mr Michael Abiodun, explained that most of the villagers had started leaving the area over fear of attacks by the herdsmen.

Abiodun said most of the villagers had left the village and are not going to sleep in village, saying anytime they have issues with Fulani herdsmen, they would always come back at night to attack them.

The farmer who lamented that the herders had destroyed their source of livelihood, pleaded with men of the Nigeria Police and Amotekun corps to come to their rescue and beef up security in the area to prevent bloodshed.
