The governors of Oyo state Seyi Makinde and Ondo state Rotimi Akeredolu, yesterday met with the leader of Nigeria’s junta Muhammadu Buhari to discuss the unprecedented levels of insecurity in their states.
This is following great tension in the two states.
Akeredolu 2 weeks ago, had announced the ban of all Fulani herdsmen from forest reserves in the state unless they registered with the state.

Also the Nigerian governors Forum just a few days ago held a forum with Miyyeti Allah and several southern governors where certain decisions were taken.
Makinde made this known via his twitter handle:
I asked for greater synergy between the state and federal security agencies. Also, I requested collaboration with the Nigeria Immigration Service for proper documentation of foreign nationals working in mines in the state. Mr President promised to look into these issues. pic.twitter.com/XWZ7VhWyPR— Seyi Makinde (@seyiamakinde) January 27, 2021
