Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose has warned that there could be reprisal attacks following the attack by assailants suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Friday evening. The attackers invaded Oke Ako in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State killing two people and injuring three.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose called on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop paying lips service to the Fulani herdsmen’s menace, saying as patron of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, the president had the capacity to caution the herdsmen. The governor, who commiserated with the people, especially the family of the deceased, vowed to do everything within his power to forestall the reoccurrence of such attack and safeguard the lives of Ekiti people.
