“The hunters have been our saving grace from the menace of these herders in the area.

“These pathetic occurrences are due to the sorry  state of our road as vehicles cannot move freely. Therefore, we are appealing to the state government to assist us in rehabilitating the road.

“Also, the road that links Obbo-Aiyegunle in Kwara  to Ekiti State is also awful. We use this medium to urge the authorities concerned to come to our rescue.”
