President Muhammadu Buhari has met separately with Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.

The meetings were held in connection with the security situation in the Southwest, especially in Oyo and Ondo states, where activities of herders have created a major challenge, following Akeredolu’s ultimatum to herders to vacate the Reserve forests in the state.

An activist, Sunday Igboho, and his men marched on Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State, sacking the Seriki Fulani from the town and torching some buildings.

Makinde told Mr. President that Oyo State needs more deployment of riot policemen and a full support of the Federal Government for its joint security outfit,

He also said his drive “is to secure the state by going after criminals who are the real enemies of the people.”

After the meeting he tweeted the following:
