Metro Ex-Naval Chief To Sue Herdsmen’s Sponsors In Zamfara, Niger, Others

#1
A former Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Samuel Afolayan (retd.), says he has contacted a Senior Advocate of Nigeria to take legal action against owners of the cows which destroyed vast acres of crops in the ex-naval chief’s farms in Kwara State last week.

He explained that this was to ensure that the law took its course against the owners of the cows, who he believed should rather be held more responsible for the atrocities of the herdsmen.

Afolayan lamented that the herdsmen burnt about 20 hectares of his orange farm, 20 hectares of his cassava farm and five hectares of his palm tree farm.

He noted that he had incurred huge losses in the past 10 years to the criminal activities of the herdsmen but had decided to keep quiet.

The retired naval boss lamented that despite his outcry over the recent destruction, the herdsmen still invaded his farms with their cows on Thursday last week.

He berated the federal and Kwara State governments for abandoning him to his fate.

According to him, there has been no response from the Federal Government and the Kwara State Government since he made public the destruction of about 45 hectares out of his 500 hectares of farms at Obbo-Ile in the Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State.
