The vice chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Abdulganiyu Ambali, has issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen encroaching into the institution’s land to leave.
Mr Ambali issued the ultimatum during a meeting with the representatives of the herdsmen and other stakeholders on the campus on Tuesday.
“Your activities are affecting our research works. Plants grown for research works are being destroyed, slowing down the pace of research work,” Mr Ambali said.
“We must ensure we do not hinder and frustrate each other, as we are members of the same society.
“People are building permanent structures on our land. When we went round, we counted about 16 structures.
“We want to use these plots for the purpose for which the university was established, hence, the need for this meeting.”
