“The face-off between the herdsmen and vigilante in the southwest, especially in Ondo State, has worsened the situation and we have continued to see the influx of unknown Fulani herdsmen especially in Wamba, Doma, and Awe LGAs,” Sule noted.

According to him, the government has put measures in place to safeguard boarding schools in the state following the activities of the bandits.

“We have also dispatched some security agencies to watch out in Wuse as well as Toto, Umaisha and Gadabuke areas. We decided to send some surveillance in those areas in addition to the police,” he added.

The expanded security meeting was attended by Security Chiefs, Traditional rulers, commissioners, permanent secretaries of religious organisations among stakeholders in the state.
