Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has raised the alarm that terrorists have taken over forests all over Nigeria, and called on the international community to help the country in the fight against terrorism.

Akeredolu raised the alarm on Tuesday when he received members of the Council of All Saints Church, Jericho, Ibadan, who paid him on a condolence visit following the recent attack on the St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State, by terrorists where about 40 people were killed with several others sustaining injuries.

While addressing the visitors, Akeredolu said the situation where forests have been taken over by terrorists in every part of the country needed the attention of the international community.

“We have terrorists in Nigeria. We have them in our forests. We need the world to assist Nigeria.

“If Nigeria doesn’t want it, Ondo State wants it. They still attacked somewhere in Ogun State recently. There are terrorists lurking in our forests,” he said.
