Starnews Nigeria had reported that a legal practitioner, Barr Wale Odusola, had on Sunday alleged in an open letter on his Facebook personal page that over 3,000 Hausas/Fulani are allegedly occupying land belonging to the Okitipupa Army Barrack in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Odusola stated this barely 24 hours after the state government returned 45 northern youths, who were apprehended at Okitipupa near the army barrack by the men of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, Amotekun, to their home towns.
