This was part of the consensus reached by a forum in Oyo Town, attended by Fulani Cattle breeders, Yoruba farmers, security agencies, and the Vigilante Group of Nigeria, VGN.

Speaking on behalf of the cattle breeders and herders, a strong member of the Miyetti Allah Group, Alhaji Yakubu Bello suggested that middlemen should no longer be involved in settling farmer herder disputes for lasting peace to reign.

While thanking Governor Seyi Makinde for his efforts on sustainable security in the state, Alhaji Bello called for the provision of drinkable water to Fulani communities across the state.

Another stakeholder, Comrade Sunday Olajide reiterated the need for unity among cattle breeders and synergy among the security agencies for the sake of peace and food security in Oyo State.
