Reacting to the incident, the state commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, said his men were pelted with stones, bottles, daggers, and guns, leaving several officers severely injured.

According to Adeniken, the herdsmen ”Continued to throw stones and bottles till they invaded the main road and hacked one of the Amotekun officers to a coma while attempting to disarm the officers and men of the Amotekun corps.

”Sequentially, the officers of the Amotekun Corps shot into the air to dislodge them and move back to the office.

“Unfortunately, other officers sustained varying degrees of injuries during the attack and they are currently receiving medical attention at the Hospital.

“Hence, the cows’ owners have been identified while investigation continues by the corps.”

He added,“Government will continue to pursue with vigour, through lawful means, to ensure strict compliance of the law to ensure that the efforts of farmers would not be truncated through destruction of their farmlands by herders and their cows.”>>>CONTINUE FULL READING HERE
