Herdsmen back in Ibarapa Oyo state destroying farms more.

Herdsmen have returned to Ibarapa-land in Oyo State, putting farmers in despair as they grazed their cattle on their farms again .

Ibarapaland was the scene of an ethnic flare-up between Yoruba and Fulani herdsmen in January, leading to the intervention of Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho

The Fulani chief was evicted in Igangan and herdsmen left in droves, causing a national uproar.

But it appears, no lesson has been learnt by the herdsmen, according to media report.

The report, quoting farmers, said herdsmen have not only returned to the area but also resumed the destruction of farms.

They have also threatened to attack farmers when challenged.

The Chairman of Real Farmers Association of Nigeria, Igangan branch, Mr. Abiodun Adegoke, spoke of several incidents at Olukosi and Asunnara villages, in which herdsmen invaded farms, sometimes at night.

Adegoke said complaints had been lodged at police stations and wondered why the herdsmen have returned to their wicked ways’ even more now.
