Tension as herdsmen kill three persons, set community ablaze in Ondo

Three persons have been feared dead in Ondo State following an attack on a community in Ose Local Government Area of the State.

The community, Molege village was said to have been attacked by herders over the refusal of villagers to allow herdsmen graze on farmlands in the community with their cows.

The herders reportedly mobilised and set the village and the farms on fire leaving villagers fleeing their homes and scampering for safety.

Reacting to the incident, Commander Amotekun, Chief Adeleye Adetunji, said normalcy has been restored to the community.

Adetunji added that while his men were on their way to the village, the attackers opened fire on the Amotekun operatives.

“We are trying to find out who they are as an adequate investigation is ongoing. We urge the people of the community to come back to their homes as peace has returned to the village.

Adetunji was however silence on the casualties recorded during the forceful invasion of the village by the attackers.
