Truck of over 100 Fulani men intercepted in Kogi state (photos)
Security officials stopped a truck carrying more than 100 Fulani men in Kogi state.
The truck was spotted by Pius Kolavole, president of the West Yagba district in Kogi state.
The intercepted people could not explain their mission, they were denied entry and were forced to return to Okunran.
This was announced in a press release by the president’s media officer Eniola Olayemi.
According to him, the event took place over the weekend.
People reportedly raised the alarm and contacted the president when they saw a group of suspects.
Concerned about the precarious security situation in the area, Kolavole contacted the police and they followed the truck together.
The truck was promptly withdrawn and transferred to the OI at the Eruku Police Station, a border town in Kwara State, for further escort from their community.
The statement also says the president is not ready and will never compromise the security of his people.
“Yagba West, under his leadership, is determined to ensure the maximum security of life and property.”
Communities in the federal district of Yagba regularly sound the alarm over the incursion of Fulani herders into the area.
