Three persons have been reportedly shot dead by suspected herdsmen at Molege village in Ose Council Area of Ondo State.

According to Sunshine Truth, the suspected herdsmen reportedly invaded the village, set several houses ablaze overnight along Elerinla near Arimogija by the rampaging herders who were irked that the villagers prevented their cows from feeding on their farmlands.

The herdsmen were said to have reportedly mobilised and set the village and the farms on fire.

The village occupants took to their heels as their properties were destroyed.

Confirming the incident, the Ondo State Commander of Amotekun Corps, Adeleye Adetunji, said that “while on a routine patrol today at Molege in Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State our men were informed that some nearby villages in Molege have been taken over by herdsmen while they burnt down some people’s properties.”

“We moved in with three patrol vehicles and took control of the situation in the village.

“On their way back, some men suspected to be herdsmen suddenly open fire on our men in an unprovoked attack because Amotekun does not want to start shooting people.”

“We are trying to find out who they are as an adequate investigation is ongoing.

“We urged the people of the community to come back to their homes as peace has returned back to the village.”, he said.
