The Ondo State Agricultural Commodities Association (OSACA) has called for an end to open grazing by Fulani herdsmen in the state.

Gbenga Obaweya and Ayo Omogie, both chairman and secretary of the group in a statement jointly signed at the weekend, condemned the killing of a farmer in Ajowa Akoko community in the state.

The dead farmer, Dayo Ibiye who is a first cousin to Akeredolu’s media aide, Gani Muhammed was killed by Fulani herdsmen after he challenged them not to destroy his farm.

The statement obtained by The Precision NG read below:

The killing of yet another farmer in Ondo State as widely reported in the media is highly reprehensible.

This is yet another among many media unreported ones.

We condemn this in the strongest terms possible and demand justice for our murdered comrade.

We extend our condolences to the family and kinsmen of our slain colleague and pledge to continue the struggle until our land is liberated from this siege.

We call for a total ban on free range grazing of Cattle in Ondo State and TOTAL EVICTION OF ALL ITINERANT HERDERS IN ONDO STATE. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
