Workers scamper for survival as deadly Fulani herdsmen storm Akure council secretariat

A deadly gang of Fulani herdsmen Tuesday invaded the secretariat of Akure South Local Government Area of Ondo State.

The fearful invasion forced the council to be deserted as workers scamper for dear lives.

According to The Guardian NG, the herdsmen, about 20, mobilized themselves armed with cutlasses, knives, charms and other dangerous weapons, to the secretariat, sitting the state capital in Akure metropolis.

The council, as early as 8:30am, was deserted by the workers, couples and their families who had fixed wedding ceremonies for the day at the registry for the fear of being attacked by the protesting herdsmen.

It was gathered that one of the workers, who owns a farm on the large expanse of land at the back of the council, had a confrontation with herdsmen grazing their cattle on his farm this morning.

The herdsmen were said to have pursued the council staff with cutlasses to the office area and pursued other staff who took to their heels, deserting their offices and premises.

This, according to eye-witnesses, made the herdsmen to mobilise themselves across the metropolis to protest at the secretariat against the perceived maltreatment of their kinsman and cattle.

However, the state Police Command and Akure Area Commander mobilised their men to disperse the herdsmen and restore peace in the area.
