Fulani settlement burnt down in Ogun over Kidnapping [Video]

Irate youths have burnt down a Fulani settlement at a village called Itin Sagamu, Ogun State, following a case of kidnapping.

The incident occurred after some herdsmen abducted a woman, whom the police said was yet to be rescued as of Tuesday night.

Incensed by the situation, some youths in Iraye, who said cases of kidnapping had been recurring in the area, stormed the Fulani settlement and set it on fire.

Sources say one person was injured in the incident as many other Fulani men fled for safety with their wives and children.

The Ogun State Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Abdulmumin Ibrahim, said about five houses were torched by the locals in the settlement.

According to Ibrahim, no life was lost in the attack, saying the affected herdsmen have temporarily relocated.

“Those affected have run away from the community. Two persons were missing earlier but they have been found. We have asked them to make a formal report at Sagamu Police station on the incident,” the MACBAN Chairman has said.

The state police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, while confirming the incident, stated that normalcy had been restored as the State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun visited the place for on-the-spot assessment.
