The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Olu Falae, has raised alarm over the incessant attacks on his farm by Fulani herdsmen.
Falae who appealed to the Ondo State Security Network, known as Amotekun to come to his aide stated that most sections of his farm at Ilado in Akure North Local Government area of the state had been destroyed by the herdsmen.
In a letter addressed to the Commander of the security outfit, Adetunji Adeleye, the elder statesman emphasized that the incident of September 21, 2015 must not repeat itself when he was kidnapped on his farm. Following his kidnap four years ago, Falae spent about five days in captivity following a frantic search by security operatives in forest reserves within the state.
According to the letter, the incidents were reported to the Chairman Meyetti Allah in the state but that did not deterred the herdsmen from attacking and injuring four workers.
The letter read; “In the last few weeks, Fulani herdsmen came into my maize farm twice to eat up and trample large sessions of the farm. “I reported the incidents to Alh. Bello. Chairman Meyetti Allah for Ondo State, nothing has happened. In the last few days, they have gone to attack my citrus farm by stealing harvested oranges and destroying what they could not carry away.”
