That place is not that developed, it's basically surrounded by bush. The Fulani herdsmen have even become indigenes at Igoba, they live there, speak Yoruba fluently, they are the ones providing accommodation to the ones who just arrived.<br><br>Aside from that, early this morning, in another part of Akure, at Oja Oba market, the Fulani herdsmen attacked some women. The Fulani herdsmen were in Army uniforms but they are not soldiers, they struck some with knives, they injured people but they didn't stay for long, they did what they wanted to do and left.<br><br>&quot;Please, we want the government to come to our aid, the security agencies should also rise to their duties. People should not die for nothing.<br><br>SaharaReporters earlier reported how residents of Adeoye, Akinrimisi and Ajaye in Ondo Town, Ondo State expressed fear as they had observed Fulani herdsmen in their numbers invading their areas with weapons and setting up hideouts for an imminent attack.<br><br>SaharaReporters learnt that the Fulani herdsmen attacked one of the areas on Monday night up till Tuesday morning, in a test-run as residents lamented that the police and the soldiers deployed in their area only extort money from motorists and turn their backs on the attackers.</blockquote><br><a rel=ugc href="http://saharareporters.com/2021/06/10/security-alert-fulani-herdsmen-large-numbers-enter-ondo-town-armed-ak-47s%E2%80%94source's=09">http://saharareporters.com/2021/06/10/security-alert-fulani-herdsmen-large-numbers-enter-ondo-town-armed-ak-47s%E2%80%94source's=09</a>
