Wole Soyinka said he was out of the country when it first happened April of 2016.  On his arrival, the home situated in the forest in Abeokuta was  invaded and a motorable path was made by the hooves of cows through the grounds. Neighboring Farmers had their crops destroyed by the herds of cattle.

The improvised entry and exit were blocked soon after but that did not deter the herdsmen as they intruded again.
