By Dayo Johnson
Ondo State Security Network, codenamed Amotekun, yesterday, vowed to auction seized cows and prosecute herders who destroy farmlands in the state.
The State Commander of Amotekun, Adetunji Adeleye, who spoke at the signing of an agreement for the release of over 250 cows arrested by the corps, said: “We would no longer allow negotiation for compensation for farm crops destroyed by cows, resulting from illegal grazing on people’s farms.
“Rather, the state government would, henceforth, prosecute owners of seized cows and auction seized animals after getting a court order.
Adeleye said the Amotekun Corps arrested over 250 cows, following a distress call and petitions by farmers in Ipogun, Ilara, Owena Dam axis in Ifedore council area of the state.
