Barely 24 hours after the delegation sent to Ibarapa to douse tension over alleged activities of herdsmen in the area, there was confusion in Eruwa on Monday after some Fulani men were intercepted at Ido area along the Ibadan -Eruwa town.
A source told the NPO Reports that at about 4pm, some mini-trucks ferrying men, grains and some arms were first intercepted along Eruwa road and they claimed to be on their way to Eruwa.
When confronted, NPO Reports source said the men claimed that they were on a hunting expedition.
Also said to be part of their luggage were some dogs.
While two of the trucks were said to have been released at Ido, they were all intercepted again at the entry point into Eruwa where angry youths insisted their mission must be declared before they would be allowed to go.
The men were said to have been forced to proceed to the Area Command of the police in Eruwa where the mini trucks were parked and the men were asked to come down.
At the area command of the police, irate youths were said to have insisted they would not allow the men proceed on their journey because they failed to give satisfactory answers on their mission to the area.
NPO Reports gathered that the Area Commander had informed the police command in Ibadan.
According to the source, the Commissioner of Police Mrs. Ngozi Onadeko was said to have ordered the trucks to be led back to Ibadan.
As at the time of filing this report, the trucks and their occupants were said to have arrived at the Criminals Investigations Department of the police in Ibadan.
Attempt to ask the police it’s findings about the men proved abortive as the command PPRO Gbenga Fadeyi did not pick his call when our correspondent called him for clarification.
