According to Punch, one of the farmers in the village, Peter David, alleged that Wakil and his fellow armed Fulani men had driven away farmers from the village since they served him a quit notice.

David said government security agencies, including Amotekun Corps, had failed to confront Wakil, who they accused of having sophisticated weapons and terrorising the villagers.

He said the people had been suffering incessant attacks and destruction of their farms from Wakil and his gang for long and added they had asked him to vacate their land when the Seriki Fulani in Igangan, Salihu Abdukadir, was given a quit notice by Igboho.

David, who owns a farm in Kajola village, narrated that the people, who came from Ayete to hand over the quit notice to the Fulani leader, narrowly escaped because they were well fortified.

“When the crisis started in Igangan, the owners of the land where Wakil is staying also said he should leave. Those ones were attacked and they ran back.

“He (Wakil) has driven farmers away from the village. This is harvest time for cashew and the people have been driven away. The cashew nuts are either wasting or Fulani are harvesting them.

“Just few of us who are real men are still around; all the women and children and some men have fled the village. Even those of us in the village also go to town at night.

“Some soldiers came and we were told the Fulani did not allow them (soldiers) to go into their settlement. They were said to have just discussed with them on the road but they were not allowed into their settlement.

“We are pleading with Chief Sunday Igboho to come to our rescue. The police and Amotekun have refused to help us. So, we will appreciate it if he can come here also to help us.”

When contacted, the Commandant of Amotekun in Oyo State, Col. Olayinka Olayanju (retd.), said he was not aware of the claims of the villagers.

The call is coming in the wake of ethnic tensions, especially across the South-West states which many have attributed to criminal Fulani herdsmen.

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Rotimi Akeredelu of Ondo State had recently issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herders, to quit the state forest reserve ober the rising cases of insecurity in the state.

Also, Sunday Adeyemo, more popularly known as Sunday Igboho, issued an ultimatum to Fulanis to leave Oyo state or face severe consequences.
