Following an attack on a community in Ondo State’s Ose Local Government Area, three people are believed to be dead.
Herders are said to have attacked the community of Molege village because villagers refused to allow herders to graze their cows on the community’s farmland.
The herders reportedly mobilized and set fire to the village and farms, forcing villagers to flee their homes and flee for their lives.
Commander Amotekun, Chief Adeleye Adetunji, responded to the incident by saying that normalcy has been restored to the community.
The attackers opened fire on the Amotekun operatives while Adetunji’s men were on their way to the village, he added.
“We’re trying to figure out who they are while conducting a thorough investigation.” We encourage the community’s residents to return to their homes now that peace has returned to the village.
Adetunji, on the other hand, remained silent about the casualties suffered by the attackers during their forcible invasion of the village.
