(This page may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

A group of cattle herders attacked workers of the Akure South Local Government Secretariat in Ondo State and took over the building as workers ran for safety on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

the invasion happened in the morning following a disagreement as one of the council workers was allegedly macheted by the herdsmen.

The matter was eventually brought under control after the intervention of security agencies led by the Ondo State Commissioner of police, Gbenga Adeyanju, and the Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Pedro Ideba.

The secretariat was reportedly deserted after the incident as workers returned to their homes in alarm.

The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has called on the government to adequately investigate the matter and take necessary action.
