The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi has written a letter to President Buhari to call his attention to the the invasion of Yoruba land by Fulani herdsmen.
In the letter, the Alaafin revealed that all the highways in Yoruba land have been taken over by Fulani herdsmen who for about raping innocent women.
He, however, maintains strong believe that President Buhari will handle the situation, but added that Yorubas might have to defend themselves if the situation doesn’t improve.
The letter reads in part:
“This has to do with the incessant and increasing menace of Fulani herdsmen that have laid siege in almost all the highways of Yoruba land. Whether in Owo, Akure, Ilesa/Ife-Ibadan road or Ibarapa zone and Ijebu area of Ogun State, the story is the same.
“I have held series of consultations with opinion moulders and eminent Yoruba leaders across board about the menace of these cattle herdsmen with such assault like raping of our women and in some occasions, in the presence of their husbands. That is apart from massive destruction of our agricultural lands; which ultimately points to imminent starvation.”
