ONDO MATTER: Court Remands Man Over Herdsman's Death
Indigenes of Arigidi- Akoko in Ondo state are currently warming up to challenge state authorities.
The court on Tuesday remanded one a farmer identified as Bayode Ajayi in prison for allegedly killing a Fulani herdsman.
Bounce News had reported that the accused murdered the deceased, Abubakar Alidu, while trying to put up a self defence against the dreaded herdsmen who invaded his farm and destroyed plants.
Taye Aduragbemi and Felix Adetoye who earlier spoke to Bounce News affirmed the stance of the community members while reacting to the court decision that there is no going back on their planned actions.
"The decision was not welcome by our people and we have decided to kick against it in our own ways. We will convene a meeting to review the judgment and whatever we decide on will be made known shortly", said Taye Aduragbemi.
Also, Felix Adetoye maintained that the decision was a slap on the people of the town.
"we have sent delegates to the state government to wade into the matter, but nothing happened. With this decision, it is obvious that Fulani herdsmen are untouchable and are licensed to kill without anyone questioning them.
"They have been killing our people and destroying our farmlands, yet no single arrest has been made but when it was our turn to defend ourselves, the police were quick to label us as criminals.
"This is the end of the road for herdsmen. After our meeting today, we will swing into action. They should be ready to arrest and remand the entire community."
