Gunmen suspected to be terrorising waterways in the Ese-Odo Local Government area of Ondo State, have allegedly razed 14 houses in a midnight attack on the Asere riverine community.
According to a report, the gunmen attacked the community for tipping off Security Agencies about their activities and movement.
Women in the community protested the attack, calling for the arrest of gang members.
The protesting women said the attackers were known members of the community who got annoyed because the Joint Task Force clamped down on them.
The protesters said the gang had been operating in the riverine area freely until Security Operatives started arresting them.
