DSS Brokers Peace Parley Between Afenifere, Herdsmen In Osun

Fulani-HerdsmenFollowing the upsurge of clashes between Fulani herdsmen and their host communities across the country, the Department of State Security has brokered peace parley between the leadership of Afenifere and Miyetti Allah Cattle Rearers Association over the frosty relationship between the two groups in the South West.

The Director of DSS in Osun State, Mr. Andrew Iorkay, according to a source organised the peace meeting following the growing tension between the leadership of Afenifere and Fulani herdsmen.

The action of the DSS in the state may not be unconnected with the recent abduction of Chief Olu Falae and altercations between the leadership of the pan Yoruba group, the Afenifere and the Fulani pastoralists.

The source said the DSS boss did not want the situation to degenerate among the two groups in Osun State hence the peace meeting.
