Ekiti State governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has tasked security agents to fish out and prosecute killer herdsmen, allegedly responsible for the Friday night attack on residents of Oke Ako Ekiti, in Ikole local government area of the state.

The governor who expressed regrets over the attack which claimed two lives warned against the repeat of such heinous act, saying he may not be able to help it should there be reprisal attacks on the Fulani herdsmen in the state if they repeat the attack on the town or elsewhere.

In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Mr Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said,  “The agents of the devil  must be fished out and punished accordingly.”

Describing the attack as the height of callousness, the governor while commiserating with the people of Oke-Ako, especially the family of the deceased, vowed to do everything humanly possible to forestall a reoccurrence of the attack and bring the culprits to book.
