While Nigerians are still shouting themselves  up and down over the story of some kind of Fulani Militia going under the name of Miyiti Allah’s Vigilante group and the governor asking the Police to go after them thousands of the same Militias have taken over all the Bushes and Forest in Ondo state.

These Militia who are hardened criminals, killers and robbers most time claimed to be Fulani headsmen as they are a times parading the same forest with their cattle under which several sophisticated weapons are hidden wrapped in Mats.

The headsmen who can be found in almost all forest and bushes in Ondo state have their headquarters or operating base  at Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State from where they intermittently launched  forays into the Sagamu express way, other Major Express ways, nearby towns and Villages to kill, loot, kidnap and rob passengers and travelers  on the highways,

Daily watch findings confirmed that the herders who have been at the Ondo Government Reserve for  over nine months now with the knowledge of the Nigerian police and other Security forces in the Country are like lord onto themselves as they live like  Mafia like gang stars who live on only robbery, kidnappings etc on the highways and villages around the localities where they have instilled fear into the inhabitants who are all living in fear of the gangs and with hundreds of reports at the Local Police station and even the state Police headquarters with no action taken until the death of Funke Olakunrin weeks ago that sparked nationwide tension and condemnation and few days of Military and Police load talk of uprooting the Militia and finally dealing with them but till date they still remain solidly and firmly in the camps and bases all over the forest while police and the Military go after Innocent Villagers’ in the Communities and Villages around were Funke,  daughter of Afiniferi Leader was killed for arrest leaving the armed militias and their base to stand still to the utmost shock of Nigerians.

Daily watch findings confirmed that the herders who are about  a thousand plus in numbers are said to have not just taken over the Government reserve but the reserve is serving as a  base from where they launch attacks and carry out their several notorious and  dastardly acts without hindrance from any quarters including the police and Military who shockingly are aware but remained mute .

Daily Watch findings confirmed that over seven to ten different Militia  bases are inside the Ondo Forest  with their duties basically that of looting, Kidnapping for ransom which are readily paid  and robberies along the express ways.

Daily Watch investigations confirmed that almost all the forest in Ondo now has thousand of Fulani headers controlling their portion which they label according to their leader with that of the government reserve area known as base headquarters and housed about a thousand and more fully armed herders and fully also known to men of the Nigerian police as reports over time of robbery, killings ,kidnapping against them have severally been lodged with the police who had not deem it necessary to act.

Daily Watch findings has it that almost all robbery on the Sagamu and Lagos express way are done by headers  from the Militia Camps who most time hide their sophisticated guns inside  mats that are tied to their cattle from whence they collect and rob after which they return same and pretended to be just cattle men.

Daily Watch spoke to the Ondo state Police PRO on the reported base  of Fulani militia at the government Reserve Area at Odigbo Local Government Area  who are suspected to be members of the killer gang involved in robberies, kidnappings and other negative vices and he confirmed hearing of same and assured that the Police have drafted   anti kidnapping team and anti robbery squad to  Kajola village in Odigbo Local Government area along Sagamu   and other forest to dismantle and arrest any  group of gangs or bandits in the forest or locations.
