Amotekun arrest 300 cows as herdsmen violate Ondo grazing ban, vandalise farms
Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, has seized over 300 cows for destroying farmlands.
The vandalised farms are located in Ipinsha community, Ifedore local government area of the state.
This comes barely 48 hours after about 100 cows were intercepted along the busy Akure/Ilesa highway for flouting the government directives on open grazing and use of underage herdsmen.
State Amotekun commander Adetunji Adeleye said that the 300 cows were arrested after a complaint by the monarch of Ipinsha community.
“It was the monarch of Ipinsha that raised an alarm that his community had been invaded and their farmlands and houses taken over by herdsmen,” Adeleye told Sahara Reporters.
The arrest caused heavy vehicular traffic along the Oyemekun-Oba Adesida Road in Akure on Tuesday morning as Amotekun operatives conveyed the cows to their headquarters in Alagbaka while it was raining heavily.
