Operatives of the Ondo State Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps on Wednesday arrested an 80-year-old herder, Mr. Dauji Ibrahim, for destroying farmland at Ero village in Ifedore Local Government.
He said he always migrate from Kogi to Osun State during the dry season and when the rains start, he would go back home.
His words, “My boy and I tried to take some rest at the early hours of the day while on our way from Osun State.
” My boy, who is younger and smarter, took to his heels. But there was nothing a man of my age could do. I tried to hide somewhere, but I was later caught and brought to the headquarter.”
Owner of the farm, Mrs. Aishat Ali, said the herders always bring their cows to destroy farmlands in the community.
