Ondo Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has urged farmers to guard their farmlands against destruction by herdsmen.
Akeredolu gave the charge on Thursday in Akure at a “Cassava Revolution’’ flag-off, NAN reports.
The governor was represented by Akin Olotu, his Senior Special Assistant on Agriculture and Agro-Allied Industries
“I want to advise that our people should come together and organise vigilantes in their respective localities to protect their farms and businesses.
“And if there is an issue, they should not hesitate to inform the Amotekun Corps, the police and others security agents”, he said.
Akeredolu assured the state government was ready to create more jobs for youths through agriculture.
He disclosed that more farmers would be engaged so that the ethanol factory will be able to produce at a higher capacity.
