10 armed Fulani herdsmen in Emure-Ekiti, Ekiti State were reportedly arrested on Thursday night.
The incident has stirred anxiety and panic in the community.
It was gathered the arrest was after the people of the town had raised the alarm of strangers in the community.
According to The Sun, State’s command Public Relations Officer, Sunday Abutu confirmed the incident saying that the arrest of the herdsmen was true.
“I cannot confirm if they are kidnappers ; they appeared to be hunters from the Next; we saw them with dane guns. We cannot ascertain if they are kidnappers or not. After investigations, we will know what they are up to.”
