Herdsmen: Buhari Deploys “Tactical” Police Team from Abuja To Conduct Assessment Of Oyo Violence
SaharaReporters on Saturday disclosed that a top official of the Nigerian Police said that President Muhammadu Buhari has deployed a police tactical team to assess the damages caused by the Friday clash between youths and Fulani herdsmen in Ibarapa North area Oyo State.
According to the source, the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Ngozi Onadeko, had been asked to lead the delegation of the police tactical team to Igangan to ascertain the level of damages to the settlement of the Seriki Fulani of Oyo State.
The source said the team would meet stakeholders and traditional rulers to assess the extent of damage done to the village.
According to the source, Governor Seyi Makinde has been asked to send a delegation to Igangan alongside the federal government delegation.
Our source revealed that the full report of the development is expected to be submitted to the Nigerian government.
The source said; “I think the major issue is the fact that the Federal Government is suspecting political influence in the matter involving Hausa-Fulani and the farmer clashes in Oyo State. But everything will be clear when the committee completes its investigation.
“I am going to be part of the investigation. I believe the necessary steps would be taken after the investigation. We are not saying anyone is guilty, but we shall see after the Investigation.”
