Chief Adesunbo believes the men are now more daring and dangerous than the most dreaded Boko Haram injuring the North-East. This is so because the herdsmen are now found all over the country attacking anybody in sight.

Onitiri drew attention to the activities of the group being usually reported by the newspapers. He made mentioned of how some suspected Fulani killed an Airforce officer, driver in Edo State, and how the police nabbed four herdsmen for kidnapping a Catholic priest in Enugu.
