Arsonists herdsmen set fire to Olu Falae’s farmland

Reports from Ondo state indicate that 5 hectares of oil plantation belonging to Chief Olu Falae has been set on fire by arsonists herdsmen.

The latest attack is the third on the farmland of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation. The farmland Per Second News gathered is located at Imafon, Akure.

” Again, they have burnt my farmland, the Fulani herdsmen, Falae confirmed to Orange FM.

Farmers in Nigeria have accused the herdsmen of trespassing on their farmland to graze their cattle, destroying their crops in recent times.

The Fulani herdsmen have always ventured in search of land on which to feed their cattle; some are semi-nomadic, rooted in communities across the country, while others travel along courses leading from Niger and Chad to Nigeria.

But the combined effect of competition for land and droughts has made their search increasingly desperate.
