  By Olakiitan Victor

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has warned that there could be
reprisal attacks on Fulani herdsmen in the State if they did not desist
from attacking the people.

He described the Fulani herdsmen that invaded  Oke Ako in Ikole local
government area of the State on Friday, killing two residents of the
town and injuring others, as “agents of the devil that must be fished
out and punished accordingly.”

According to a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public
Communications , Lere Olayinka, Fayose said: “I have directed
the police and other security agencies in the State  to fish out the
killer herdsmen. I am in constant touch with the security agencies
and I hope that the killer herdsmen will be fished out wherever they
are and made to face the full wrath of the law.

“The people of Oke-Ako should therefore remain calm while the security
agents do their job. However, the security agents must be mindful of
the fact that the people’s patience has a limit and they must
therefore act promptly and decisively.”
