The clashes between farmers and herdsmen in southwestern Nigeria called for an immediate response from both the state and the federal governments, but people were left to face the challenges alone until a governor in the region vowed to intervene and protect his citizens.
The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has finally heard the crying of the Yewa people who have been brutally affected by the killer herdsmen in the community.
Recall that it was reported that people in the area have started running to the Benin Republic, a neighboring country for protection. Although the state government publicly faulted the claim by saying those that left are not the people of Yewa, many organizations from the state condemned the government’ s view by saying it all lies. They said the insecurity in the area has truly forced many people to seek refugees in other countries that they feel their lives and properties will be saved.
This development among many others has forced the government to take drastic steps in protecting its people. Today, Dapo Abiodun supported the newly established Joint Security Intervention Squad (JSIS) with security vehicles, comprising 10 operational vans and 20 motorcycles equipped with communication gadgets.
The Joint Security Intervention Squad (JSIS) was founded some weeks ago to protect the lives and property of people against the herdsmen. The security outfit has its members from the Nigeria Army, Nigeria Police, Department of State Security Service (DSS), and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
Also, in his commitment to end the Fulani herdsmen and their host communities clash, the governor promised to start deploying members of the State Security Network, AMOTEKUN to the affected area. They are to serve as reinforcement to the Joint Security Intervention Squad (JSIS).
Mr. Governor that crime must not be ascribed to any ethnic nationality but addressing and treating criminals according to the appropriate provisions of the law.
