BREAKING!: Buhari Hosts Makinde, Akeredolu in Aso Villa
President Muhammadu Buhari has met separately with Oyo governor, Seyi Makinde and his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu.
Although details of the meetings remained sketchy, it could be about issues of insecurity in the states, especially the herdsmen crisis.
It was also gathered that President Buhari and Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, met behind closed doors in Aso Rock on the brewing ethnic crisis in Yorubaland.
A close source said the Yoruba leader told the President the positions of traditional rulers in South-West on the activities of the herdsmen. OOni reportedly told the president about the damages caused by the killer Fulani herdsmen in the region.
He also told the president about steps taken by traditional rulers to ensure peace in the region.
In a related development, Governor Akeredolu had issued a seven day quit notice to the herders to leave the Ondo State forest reserves. He said the criminals among the herders are using the reserves as hideouts for their heinous activities.
The visit of Makinde could be related to issue surrounding insecurity in Oyo state that see popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Igboho, and his supporters stormed Igangan town in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State to chase the Fulani heders out of the community after the expiration of a quit notice earlier issued.
