Herdsmen Flee As Amotekun Arrest 100 Cows In Ondo State

Operatives of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun Corps have arrested one hundred cows for flouting the open grazing law of the State.

The cows were caught along the Akure/Ilesa highway.

The herdsmen were reported to have abandoned the cows and fled upon sighting the men of the Amotekun Corps.

The Ondo State Commander of the Amotekun Corps, Adetunji Adeleye, confirmed the arrest of the Cows to newsmen, adding that the arrest was part of the efforts in enforcing the directives of the State government that the streets and forest reserves be rid of unregistered herdsmen in the state.

The Amotekun boss explained that the cows were intercepted and arrested at the boundary between Osun and Ondo States. He added that it took the operatives about 30 kilometres to control the cows to the Amotekun headquarters in Akure, the State capital.

“Our men controlled the cows to the headquarters of our office which was about 30 kilometres from the point they were intercepted.

“We should take note that our men are in all the 18 local government areas and we are on 24 hours patrol. We arrived at the scene promptly,” Adeleye said.

Adeleye noted that some kidnappers use illegal cattle grazing as a ploy to waylay and kidnap innocent residents in the state.
