Protesters took to the streets to demonstrate in support of the vacation order to herdsmen by Rotimi Akeredolu, the governor of Ondo State.
Mr Akeredolu had earlier in the week issued a seven days ultimatum to herders to either register with the state government or vacate forests reserves in the state.
He said this was to checkmate rising insecurity in the state which testimonials from kidnap victims points to herdsmen residing in bushes as arrowheads.
Demonstrating on Thursday with placards in support of the governor’s order are drivers, farmers and forest guards at the state capital, Akure.
Jacob Adejo, chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers who addressed journalists said commercial drivers were no longer safe in the state due to the alleged terror acts of the herders.
