Herdsmen Attacks: Group Demands Police Station in Akunu Akoko

Worried by what it described as frequent herdsmen attack, the lsowopo Consultative Assembly in Akoko North East Local Government Area of Ondo state, has called for the establishment of a well equipped police station at the border town of Akunu akoko.

The group in a communiqué after its meeting, at Ugbe Akoko, also urged the state government to continue to tighten the security in and around the 6 lsowopo Communities in the Akoko North East Local Government Area, still under the danger of invasion by violent herdsmen.

The communique signed by Chairman, Isowopo Peoples’ Consultative Assembly, Prince George NIYI however thanked the state government for  setting up an arbitration committee to stem the tide of herdsmen menace in their communities.

The group expressed dismay with the number of prominent indigenes, including traditional chiefs who have vested interests in the activities of the herdsmen and allegedly provide them cover to escape the law.

It therefore appealed to such individuals and groups of people to desist from colluding with the herdsmen against their own people.

“Members of the lsowopo Consultative Assembly in the Akoko North East Local Government Area, thanked the Ondo State Government for its efforts in setting up an Arbitration Committee to stem the tide of herdsmen menace in our communities.

“The Assembly however urged the state government to continue to tighten the security in and around the 6 lsowopo Communities in the Akoko North East Local Government Area, as we are still under the danger of the invasion of our farmlands by new, strange and violent herdsmen.

“A full-fledged and well-equipped police station be established at the border town of Akunu in Isowopo Community of Akoko North East Local Government Area of the state.” Part of the Communiqué read.
