Herdsmen: Ondo monarch laments incessant attacks on farmers


The Deji of Akureland, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi, has expressed worry over the incessant attacks on farmers by Fulani herdsmen across Ondo State, particularly Akureland in the last two months.

The monarch lamented that the rate at which the herdsmen were killing the farmers, destroying their farmlands and raping their wives was getting out of hand.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Micheal Adeyeye, in Akure on Monday, the traditional ruler said unchecked nefarious activities of the herdsmen had reached a dangerous peak which needed urgent attention of the Federal Government.

Oba Aladelusi also said the herdsmen were wrecking havoc on the farmers with impunity without any check.

The monarch said, “The Federal Government needs to pay attention and tackle the issue of Fulani herdsmen which is fast becoming a serious menace and threat to the peace in Akure as well as other South-West states.

“The incessant attacks on farmers and other residents in some parts of Akure is becoming a source of major concern.

“The recent attack on and wanton destruction of the farmland belonging to a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Olu Falae, is condemnable and must be nip in the bud once and for all, considering the far reaching effects of this unprovoked and recurring attack if not quickly checked.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
