Pictured! Father Of Seven Brutally Murdered By Fulani Herdsmen In Ondo State (Photo)

 
Farmers and residents from the over 200 villages and camps in Ondo state have trooped to the streets to condemn the brutal murder of the a 64-year-old farmer, Linus Ogbee, a father of seven in Ilion Camp, Igbatoro in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State by Fulani herdsmen.
 
According to Vanguard, Ogbee had gone to the farm on the ill-fated day and when he did not return home as promised, his family members went in search of him only to discover his lifeless body in the bush, riddled with gunshots.
 
Vanguard gathered that the camp was a few distance to the farm of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Olu Falae, which the herdsmen also invaded last week.
 
During the invasion of Chief Falae’s farm, the herdsmen reportedly engaged in a gun battle with policemen deployed to the farm to dislodge them and in the process many cows were killed. Reports had it that the herdsmen stormed the villages in search of their cows and in the process shot the farmer they met in the farm.
 
Speaking to newsmen, the traditional ruler of Igbatoro, Oba Adanri Akinsehinde, who confirmed the death of the farmer, said fear had gripped the people of the community as the herdsmen are still around and preventing them from accessing their farmlands.
 
He appealed to the security operatives to help flush out the herdsmen, who have prevented the people from going to farms, which have equally been destroyed.
