Herdsmen have destroyed farms in Obasooto Camp, along the newly constructed Idanre / Akure road in Ondo state.

The owners of the farms said their food crops were eaten up by cows.

 They added that  their crops were ravaged over the night three days ago by the cows .

According to  them, food crops worth millions of naira were destroyed by the cows.

One of them, Mr. Friday Ayaghi,  said his cassava plantation with which he claimed he intended to feed his wife and children had been eaten up along with other food crops.

Ayaghi who hails from Kogi State and working in the area as a labourer, said feeding his family now has become a challenge which seems insurmountable.

A physically challenged octogenarian. Pa Olatuja Idowu, said  his farm and that of his wife with cassava, pineapples, plantains, cocoyam were all destroyed by the herdsmen and their cows.

He said they first attacked his wife’s farm some ten days ago but came again three days ago to destroy his farm and the rest of his wife’s farm.
