Ado Awaye Shooting: Herdsmen Sue For Peace

Two Fulani boys allegedly shot at Ado Awaye last Sunday by a suspected member of Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, are no longer on the danger list at a private hospital in Iseyin.

Police at Ado Awaye had earlier ordered the OPC men believed to be involved in the shooting to take the boys to the hospital for treatment pending further investigation into the matter.

Radio Nigeria gathered that fear gripped the boys on sighting the OPC men who said they were on patrol, making them to start running away before they were shot on the legs.

However, a Fulani chieftain in the community, Jowuro Boni said the incident has confirmed a brewing crisis between his people and some members of the host community because apart from twelve thousand naira, nothing incriminating was found on the boys.

Former chairman of Miyetti Allah in Oyo state, Alhaji Yakubu Bello who noted that such incident was becoming too much in recent times called for peaceful coexistence among the various ethnic groups living in the area.

Efforts to get police comments are still ongoing as at the time of filing this report.
