Angered by the incessant killings of their people by suspected Fulani terrorists, the Yewa North Patriotic Forum, an umbrella body of youths in Yewaland, Ogun State has issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani terrorists in Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The youths gave the ultimatum on Friday, 24 hours after suspected Fulani herdsmen gruesomely killed five persons in Owode-Ketu, Egua in the council area.

The group gave this ultimatum in a press statement tagged, ‘YNPF to killer Fulani herdsmen: We can’t condone you beyond seven days,’ and made available to newsmen on Friday, in Abeokuta, the state capital.

The statement was issued by President of the group, Sanni Omobolaji.

He said villagers have been living in fear and pains of the incessant killings which he said could only be traced to the herders mostly.

He said the villagers refused to fight back, hoping that a quick solution will be gotten after complaints to the government.

Some killer herdsmen had invaded Owode Ketu community and Egua on Thursday around 5.00am and killed about five persons whose dead bodies were reportedly found in nearby bushes and in the Egua River.

The statement said, “As responsible young people in Yewa North, we have tried to ensure that our coexistence works, even when we are the legitimate owners of Yewa land. But today’s gruesome killing of five of our people has shown that killer Fulani herdsmen can only live in their own world.
