Yoruba nation advocate, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, commonly known as Sunday Igboho, has urged security agencies to put an end to the recent surge in suspected herdsmen’s attacks on farmers in Iwere-Ile community of Iwajowa Local Government Area and other towns in the Oke Ogun region of Oyo. He also emphasized the need for swift action by the Police and other security forces to address reported conflicts between rogue herdsmen and farmers in parts of Ogun, in order to maintain peace in agricultural communities.

In a press statement personally penned by Adeyemo and shared with the Nigerian Tribune, he called upon the Police, the Department of State Security (DSS), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), and the Nigerian Army to tackle these security challenges before they escalate further.
