One killed as farmers, Fulani clash in Kwara

One person was reportedly killed in a bloody clash between farmers and fulani herders at Rogue village in Patigi local government area of Kwara State

The Informant247 gathered that after the death of the farmer, the aggrieved farmers invaded Fulani camp in retaliation, where they allegedly set properties of the Fulani herders including motorcycles ablaze.

However, Etsu Patigi, Alhaji Ibrahim Umar Bologi 11, has waded into the crisis calling on his people to calm down and maintain peace in the area, while assuring the Fulani that no retaliation would be carried out by his kinsmen and nothing will happen to anyone, just as normalcy has been restored.

Meanwhile, the Chairman, Kwara state branch of Gan Allah Fulani Development Association of Nigeria, GAFDAN, Ali Muhammed Jounwuro, in his reaction in Ilorin on Saturday expressed grave concern that at least 103 houses of innocent Fulani persons were burnt, quarrying why the aggrieved people should take the laws into their hands if they suspected some people doing the wrong things.

“The Fulani camp is more than 40 years old at Rogu within Patigi LGA. They have been law abiding citizens for the period of 40 years without harming anybody,” the chairman added.
