Insecurity In Kwara South: An Urgent Call For Collaborative Effort! - KWAYORG

We write to express our deepest concern and apprehension at the growing insecurity in our Region (Kwara South) as it relates to our farmers. We have learnt over time , that the Government have always left our region to it's security challenges helplessly.

This is bad and worrisome!

Amidst the security situations in the country, we have monitored an escalation of acts by the fulani herdsmen moving from some part of the country to our own Region.

Before now, our Farmers were not receiving the necessary nod to farm, if their farm proceeds would eventually be preyed upon by the herders uncontrolled.

It appears to our people the Government isn't putting any security apparatus in place to checkmate the herders.

We can see states like Ondo and Ekiti doing so much, putting regulations in place to checkmate the activities of herders.

Examples are influx of Herders into Ekiti, Buari (even with upto 6 trailers), Omu Aran, Aran Orin, etc.

These acts should be discouraged, for it not to degenerate to a situation whereby they would not be controllable, and farmers would have to take laws into their hands, especially when the activities of the herders can not be monitored.

We urge the State Government to kindly take pro - active steps to check mate this and not wait until we have casualties again.

Below are our possible suggestions in handling these critical situations;

1. Profiling every Fulani resident and their families in every community of the state through their leaders;

2. Signing a security bond with their leaders to be law abiding;

3. Placing a Ban of Night cattle herding;

4. Having ID cards to identify those who are invaders;

5. Ensure that all their activities are being monitored by security agents timeously;

6. Setting up panels or committees that would be assigned to assess the security situations in the aforementioned places.

7. A detailed Security intelligence reports should be carried out at all times.

We believe if the above suggestions are duly considered, we can be a step ahead of the situation.

Thank you.
