The leaders of the Miyetti Allah are set to meet with the South West Governors Forum on Monday in Akure, the state capital following the expiration of the seven days ultimatum issued by Ondo State governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, to Fulani herdsmen to vacate the state’s forest reserves.
The meeting is expected to proffer solutions to the persistent killings, kidnapping, and crises between herdsmen and farmers in the region.
Western Post exclusively gathered this from a southwest governor media aide.
The source said his principal would be in Akure to attend the meeting between the leadership of Miyetti Allah and other governors from the region.
He said the presidency has been disturbed by the turn of events in the southwest and has secretly directed the leadership of Miyetti Allah to hold an urgent meeting with governors of the region.
He explained that the presidency noticed the determination and insistence of Ondo State government and Akeredolu to carry out the order to the letter and had to design a way to appeal to Ondo governor and the South-West governors before the ultimatum ends.
He, however, said the meeting was organised between the South-West governors and the Miyetti Allah in a bid to save off a major conflict between herders occupying the southwest region of the country.
