BREAKING: Herdsmen Sack Ondo LG Secretariat
Some Fulani herdsmen this morning chased out the workers at the Akure South Local Government Secretariat following a disagreement.
The herdsmen numbering about 30 invaded the council secretariat from the back gate that leads to a swampy area being cultivated by some workers of the local government.
It took the intervention of the Ondo State Commissioner of police, Mr. Gbenga Adeyanju, and the Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Mr. Pedro Ideba, who deployed their men in the council, before the situation was brought under control.
One of the workers of the council was allegedly macheted by the herdsmen.
Following the incident, the secretariat was deserted by the workers, some of whom returned home after the incident.
