A joint task force comprising operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, the Nigerian Army and the police, on Wednesday, intercepted a large number of suspected Fulani herdsmen coming to settle down in Kwara State.

The spokesman of the defence corps, Kwara State Command, Babawale Zaid Afolabi, disclosed this in a statement in Ilorin on Thursday.

According to Babawale, “On Wednesday, 04/08/2021, at about 0700hours, suspected Fulani herdsmen were intercepted at Erin-Ile, a border town of Kwara state through a joint effort of the NSCDC, Army and the Police.

“The herdsmen, who were in a large number with some of their cattle, were stopped at Erin-Ile-Offa axis end of the Kwara-Osun state boundary on their way to Ajasse-Ipo, a town in the Ifelodun Local Government Area of the state.”

The spokesman said the herdsmen and their cows were going to Ajasse-Ipo, a town with a large concentration of the Fulani in the state.

“The suspected herdsmen were later led to Ajasse-Ipo by the JTF where further background check and profiling was carried out by the appropriate security operatives,” the spokesman stated.

Saga Gist reports that in the meantime, the herdsmen have been allowed to remain in Ajasse-Ipo pending the time when all necessary actions would be taken and security beefed up in and around the town.
