Meanwhile, there was confusion among farmers in Ore Ondo State on Tuesday as a middle-aged man, Olafusi Akinseye suddenly slumped and later died following the marking of his farmland on government forest reserve for demolition.
Niger Delta Connect gathered that Akinseye who resided in Odigbo Town had developed high blood pressure since government displaced farmers from the forest reserve some weeks ago.
The farmers had protested their displacement from the forest reserves alleging that they were ejected from there after government collected annual due of Ten thousand naira from each of them.
They called on Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu to rescind it’s earlier decision for the good and interest of the state.
Abayomi Akintomide while expressing his displeasure over the development said, “This is the only last option I have. How could the government just decide to take it away from me. I have six children and two wives aside other dependants. How do I feed them from now on?
“Ondo State government must have mercy on us.”
