Over 37 herdsmen with 5,000 cattle were on Thursday evicted from forest reserves by the Ondo State Government.

The state’s security network, also called Amotekun Corps, which effected the ejection, said the herders failed to comply with the directive of the state government to register before they could be allowed to operate in the area.

Director General of the corps, Adetunji Adeleye, told PREMIUM TIMES on Friday that the process of effecting the directive of the state government was ongoing.

He said those who failed to cooperate with the corps would leave the forest, even as he noted that a number of the herders were cooperating with Amotekun.

The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, had earlier ordered that herdsmen grazing in the forest reserves should either register with the appropriate agencies or vacate the reserves.

The governor had also issued a ban on night and under-age grazing in the state as part of measures to curb the prevailing insecurity in the state.

Before Thursday, the herders had refused to vacate the forest reserves, a development which prompted the Amotekun corps to swing into action to evict them from the forest reserves.

It was gathered that the herds and their owners were escorted out of the forests by operatives of the corps.

Mr Adeleye said the eviction would be total as most of the herders had vowed not to comply with the registration order of the state government.
