Ogun Herders’ Crisis: Benin Republic Returnees Awaiting Shelter – Eselu Tell by Insecurity(m): 8:38am On May 09
NEWSOgun herders’ crisis: Benin Republic returnees awaiting shelter – Eselu tells Gov Abiodun

The Eselu of Iselu land, Oba Akintunde Akinyemi has reminded Governor Dapo Abiodun that displaced Ogun State indigenes, who returned from Benin Republic after the recent herders’ crisis are still awaiting the shelter he promised them.

At the peak of the farmers/herders clashes in Yewa axis of Ogun State, many displaced residents were said to have fled to neighbouring Benin Republic to avoid being killed by suspected herdsmen.

DAILY POST had reported that many people were shot or butchered to death by the fiendish herdsmen, who also set set houses, motorcycles and other properties on fire.

At the time, the government of Ogun State was not pleased with media reports that Ogun residents relocated to Benin Republic.

Even with video evidences, the Chairman of the peace committee on farmers/herders clashes, Hon. Kayode Oladele said no Yewa indigene relocated to the French-speaking country.

According to Oladele, those who fled to the country were the Ohoris and the Eguns, who were originally from the Republic of Benin, adding that nothing had happened in Yewa that could warrant relocation across the border.

As the denial continued, those who fled their communities began to return to Asa, Ibeku, Agbon Ojodu, Orile Igbooro and other villages in Yewa North and Imeko-Afon Local Government Areas.

This, DAILY POST learnt, was made possible when normalcy was restored by the joint security task force put in place by Governor Dapo Abiodun in the troubled areas.

However, it was gathered that many of the returnees have no houses to return to, even as some of them reportedly died in the foreign land.

With their houses and belongings torched, the majority of those who returned to their villages are at the mercy of individuals that took them in, as they look on to the government to give them a place to retire to after the labour of each day.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with our correspondent, the Eselu, Oba Akinyemi said government would not have denied that Ogun residents relocated to Benin Republic if it had done its findings initially.

Oba Akinyemi stated that the Ogun State government later found out that indigenes of Yewa truly relocated across the borderline.

“Initially, when government said it wasn’t true that people moved to Benin Republic, maybe it was because they didn’t find out. But, later when they found out, they discovered that Ogun indigenes were there.

“But now, we have convinced them, everybody is back home. However, they are waiting for the promise of the governor to give them shelter and the rest of it. They’re back home and the governor knows they back. But the truth remains that they are still looking at the things the government promised them and that’s what we are agitating for,” Oba Akinyemi said.

Speaking about the security situation of the area, the Eselu disclosed that, “Presently the governor has taken a measure to beef up security. Soldiers, police, all of them are there. At least, that has tamed the killers to some extent. For now, we are not hearing of killings anymore in that axis, because of the presence of the army and that of the police.”

The monarch appealed to the government not to redeploy the security agents from the area.

“We just need to implore the government to continue to leave them (the task force) there. They should not withdraw them, so that they can stabilize the security challenges we have in Yewa area.

“With the measures put in place by the joint task force, we are still looking at the security of this area to be a bit stable. The Governor should continue to keep them there so that if there is any distress call, they will respond immediately,” he said.

I support Yoruba nation, enough of the killings – Ogun Oba, Eselu declares

I will advise them to go to Tinubu's house...He has large bullion vans to fund them and space to accommodate them...he can't be sharing rice to the North and forget his own kinsmen. If their votes will be valid in 2023, let their complain be valid in 2021.

The people of sw choose to leave in denial of the activities of herdsmen because of 2023. Yorubas keep telling their people to endure the herdsmen until a yoruba man is president then they will teach herdsmen a lesson neva to forget. The question is what if a yoruba man does not bcome president in 2023. What happens?

You won't see people like iammo, sarrki, helinues and co here, due to the shame.

But if it's thread about UGM, they will be vomiting out their livers there grin

Instead of defending their lands against herdsmen, the lily livered SWners ran to Benin Republic to eat watery beans. Chai, it does not pay to be a SWner.

Who gives a f**k if they disappear or not.

Who gives a F**k if they read or reply??

Any thread opened by any miscreant be it Afonja or fulani almajiri will be countered as required.


i understand that silence is golden ....but the savage way IGBOs and other South Easterners respond to their useless tantrums, makes them call the MODs for protection..

So please let people who want to defend their existence and dignity of their tribe do so....cheers!

Like Thatfairguy1. Thatfairguy is only interested that an Igbo man would never be president of Nigeria and I asked him one simple question that he is yet to answer. I asked him if the monkeys have been able to drive the bus since they overran it. Only Igbo presidency can save Nigeria from this present doom.

You go wait tire. Afonjas are clever enough to know how to avoid threads about them unlike lgbos that allow their emotions get a better of them by responding to every stupid thread about them.
Nairaland should thank God every lgbo man is not like me, if not my silence would have frustrated and made a fool out every lgbo hater.

Your good for nothing useless government of oppressor denied that none of Yewa indigenes fled to Republic of Benin, yet you’re still waiting for the same government to provide shelter for you.

Una mumu never do, even if Fulani herdsmen kill you all your government will still denied it.

You will be surprise that if the governor(Dapo Abiodun) visit Yewa, these same commoners will still wear printed Ankara in his name and call drummers to dance after him

Majority of Nigerians masses are in love with their oppressors, and they are destine to suffering and smiling.

How can Yorubas be refugees on all fronts?

ISIKILU WASKILI chased them away from Ibarapa and Igangan kingdom all in Oyo State

Saiko Oumar chased them away in Ekiti State

Boubacar Mamado chased them away in Osun State

Lamine Yero chased them away in Ondo State

Ibrahima Yaya chased them away from Asa, Ibeku, Agbon Ojodu, Orile Igbooro and other villages in Yewa North and Imeko-Afon Local Government Areas of Ogun State

You are right in your way,we are also right in our own way.


When lie is repeated several time without anyone counter it,it becomes true and a preference point.


Remember the saying "Igbo hate themselves".

It was propaganda by yoruba media,and it got to a time that even many Igbos believed that because of constant propagating of that sentence.


Today we are here asking them to name the tribe that love themselves more Igbos.
