No fewer than 6 persons have been gruesomely murdered at Arimogija and  Molege axis of Ose Local Government Area of Ondo state in the last two weeks.

According to investigation, the recent attack was triggered by effort by farmers to repel the continued destruction of their crops by the herdsmen.

 It was gathered that many houses, cars and motorcycles were burnt during the attack while the families of the victims, killed some cows to fight back.

A community leader, Mr. Owolafe Folorunsho, while narrating the incident said the herders have continued to invade their farmlands at night, harvest crops to feed their cows and in many occasions.

 He also said sometimes the headers force them to uproot the cassava by themselves at gunpoint and command them to cut them into pieces to feed their cows.

 The Chairman of the local government, Prince Adekunle Dennis, expressed worries and concern of Governor  Akeredolu over the security situation in Ose saying  something will be done urgently to checkmate the excesses of the herdsmen.
