The governor was welcomed by hundreds of placard carrying youths with inscriptions registering their displeasure at the menace of the herdsmen. Mr. Fayose in his address promised to compensate family of the deceased. He promised to amend the anti-grazing law such that anyone who deliberately kill cows/herders will be liable to a year imprisonment.

Mr. Fayose promised to set up a 5 man committee with a task to unravel the cause and put a permanent solution to incessant attacks on the town.

Charging the people not to take law into their hands by way of reprisals, the governor thanked security agencies for responding on time to his distress call even as he assured people of Ipao/Irele/Oke Ako the continued presence of security men.

Ekiti State Commissioner for Police, Ibrahim Chafe assured the community that he was working with other security agencies to ensure protection of their lives and properties.
