Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has warned that there could be reprisal attacks on Fulani herdsmen in the state if they do not desist from invading communities in Ekiti and attacking the people, describing the Fulani herdsmen that invaded Oke Ako in Ikole Local

Government Area of the state on Friday, killing two residents of the town and injuring others as “agents of the devil that must be fished out and punished accordingly.”

Governor Fayose, who commiserated with the people of Oke-Ako, especially the family of the deceased, vowed to do everything humanly possible to forestall the reoccurrence of such attack and safeguard the lives of Ekiti people.

According to a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said the Fulani herdsmen were becoming major threat to the unity of Nigeria and its people, saying; “I will not fold my hands while armed herdsmen

invade communities in Ekiti, killing people and destroying farmlands at will as they have done in other states. (Nigerian Pilot)
