Farmers in Ado Ekiti Seek Urgent Government Intervention as Herders Destroy Crops on Massive Scale


Farmers in Idege farm, Ado Ekiti, accused herders of devastating their yam and cassava crops across multiple hectares. Ibrahim, one of the affected farmers, revealed that more than 30 farmers fell prey to this recurring destruction. Speaking in Ado Ekiti, Ibrahim emphasized the severity of the recent damage, with over 4,000 heaps of cassava destroyed on his farm alone. Expressing the economic impact, he stressed that farming is their means of livelihood, and the continuous attacks jeopardize their self-sufficiency.

Ibrahim appealed to Governor Biodun Oyebanji, Commissioner of Police Dare Ogundare, and Amotekun Corps Commandant Brig. Gen. Olu Adewa (retd) for intervention. Responding to the concerns, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Security Matters, Brig. Gen. Ebenezar Ogundana, assured that the government is actively addressing farmer-herder conflicts, with measures such as arrests, compensations, and legal actions taken against destructive herders. The aim is to foster mutual respect and prevent further conflicts between the two groups.
