The Alauga of Auga, Oba Samuel Agunloye, said many of the herders were fond of destroying farmers crops.
The monarch said he had refused to be involved in such case since his wife was kidnapped for days and captors were referring to such civil settlement, hence they needed to contact law enforcement agencies to intervene.

Alauga hailed the state Police Command for patrolling Ise-Auga Akunu road axis that is notorious for kidnappings and robberies.
The monarch also pleaded with the governor to activate the multi-million Agric village in Auga-Akoko.
