Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has told residents of the state to defend themselves against Fulani herdsmen who try to attack them.
“On no account should anybody come to sack our communities again, rise up against them. Before any herdsmen kill you, kill them, before they rape your wives, kill them, and before they rape your children kill them,” Fayose said according to The Nation.
Fayose also banned grazing in the state saying that cattle should only be reared in ranches.
