Fulani herders are suspected of invading a rural hamlet in Ekiti State and destroying hundreds of farmlands.

This is according to several farmers at Idege farmhouse in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital of Ekiti.

Farmers begged the government and security forces to give them with protection, claiming that “armed herders” are pursuing them to “eradicate them.”

Farmers who complained about the damage of many hectares of farmland in the region by suspected herders stated their crops spanned several hectares of land and were decimated by cattle reared free-range by certain Fulani nomads.

One of the casualties, Ibrahim, told media in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, that the disaster impacted around 30 farmers in the farmhouse.

In another development, suspected Fulani herders attacked another Plateau town, murdering at least five people.
