At least two people died on Thursday in a clash between the operatives of the Ondo State Security Network known as Amotekun and armed herders.
The incident occurred at Ago Sanusi, along Ute Road in Owo, headquarters of Owo Local Government Area of the state.
Sources said that the herdsmen had earlier clashed with farmers which led to a “call on Amotekun operatives for intervention”.
Amotekun operatives reportedly got to the scene and were attacked by herdsmen. These led to the death of a farmer and a vigilante.
“One farmer and a vigilante attached to the Amotekun during the clash were shot in the head(s) by herdsmen and both of them are dead now,” Supo Ojo, a resident told Premium Times.
