Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has come out to warn herders and farmers to never allow their disputes lead to violence.

He recently gave the warning when the Committee on Farmer/Herders Conflict submitted its report to him in his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

According to him, the recent farmers/ herders conflict in some parts of the state negatively affected the peaceful nature which Ogun is noted for, and that can no longer be condoned.

He then begged indigenes and those who chose to settle in the state to continue to live in peace as they have done for ages.

His words, “This Committee was set up by the government to basically look into what happened, quantify the losses from both sides and make recommendations to government on how to pre-empt similar conflict from occurring in the future.”

“We realized that this axis has a communication problem which prevented our people from communicating especially in times of crisis. We are solving this problem because telecommunication companies have started erecting their masts and very soon communication will improve in these areas.”
