Two weeks, ago the Eruku community of Kwara State begged authorities to come to their aid following frequent attacks by suspected Fulani mercenaries.  Oba Busari Olarewaju, the traditional ruler and other stakeholders of the community during a town hall meeting lamented that over seven members of the community, including a local hunter have lost their lives to attacks by suspected herdsmen.

A month ago herdsmen reportedly left sorrow, tears and blood in Udi Local Government area of Enugu State after hacking to death a prominent titled chief in Eke community.
