Pa Olu Falae

While speaking in a phone interview with DailyPost, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Olu Falae, disclosed why suspected Fulani herdsmen burnt his farmland at Imafon, Akure South Local Government Area of Ondo state.

According to the elder statesman, the killer herdsmen burnt the farm so as to allow fresh grass to spring up for their cattle to feed on, adding that setting ablaze his farm had become an annual act by the herdsmen.

He said; “They burnt the farm so that in the next few days, fresh grass will spring up which their cattle will later feed on.

 

“This is what the Fulani herdsmen do every year. The oil palm plantation was affected as well as some parts of the yam and cassava plantations.

 

“As I speak to you, the farm is burning. I had to call the commissioner of police, Gbenga Adeyanju who detailed the Akure Area Commander to go with my Personal Assistant and Farm Manager to the farm,” Falae said.

He said Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu personally called him to confirm the incident and promised to visit today (Monday).

Pa Falae also kicked against cattle colony, saying it was an attempt to “recolonize” the Southwest. He said “any attempt to ‘recolonize’ the southwest through cattle colonies would be resisted

”This is not about politics but the future of our people. We will resist any attempt to introduce any cattle colonies”.
