On Thursday, farmers, drivers, and forest guards in Ondo state expressed satisfaction with the seven days ultimatum Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu gave herdsmen to vacate forest reserves across the state.
The groups noted that they were the most affected by the incessant banditry and kidnappings in the state as they stormed Akure, the state capital.
The group said that some of the members had been either kidnapped or killed and the decision taken by the state governor was done in the best interest of the people in the state.
The farmers noted that there might be famine in the state if the current state of insecurity is not checked.
According to the Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, in the state, Jacob Adejo, his members need protection as herders attacked them with impunity as well as kidnapped them while going about their legitimate business.
