Mohammed made this statement, referring to the Governor of Ondo state that citizens of the country do not need the permission of the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, to reside in the Ondo forest.

The Governor made this known during an interview with newsmen.

He said, “Land is in the hands of the state and federal governments in trust, but Nigerians don’t need the permission of governors or the federal government to settle everywhere. You don’t need the permission of the Governor of Bauchi or the Governor of Ondo to be in the forests of Ondo if you choose to live in the forests because, under Section 41 of the constitution, you are free to settle anywhere.”

He also supports that the herders should be allowed to carry AK-47 for self-defense against cattle rustlers. According to him, it’s not for them to perpetrate violence, as he’s not in support of herders or Fulani’s causing havoc in the country.

“When we mention AK-47, it is a figure of speech; the issue is protection, self-help, you must protect yourself”.
