BREAKING: Gunmen On Motorcycles Kill Four Farmers In Oyo Community

No less than least four farmers have been killed on Monday by gunmen in Konkobudo village, Idiyan axis, a border village located between Ibarapa North and Iwajowa Local Government Areas of Oyo State.



It was gathered that the gunmen on motorcycles stormed the village before sunrise on Monday and shot the farmers who were asleep on their farmland. The criminals also hacked their victims before fleeing the village.

A resident of the village, Ogunniyi Joel, said the remains of the victims have been taken away by men of the Nigeria Police Force in Iwajowa.

“They came over night on about 10 motorbikes, shot the four farmers, hacked them and left. One of those killed is Sunday Okanlawon, a close relation. No one knows their identities whether they were herdsmen or not but the bodies of the farmers have been taken away by the police,” he told The PUNCH.

Also, the Public Relations Officer of Igangan Development Advocates in Ibarapaland, Oguntowo Abideen, confirmed the incident to The PUNCH.

Efforts to reach the Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State, Olugbenga Fadeyi, proved abortive as he did not respond to calls put to his line. A text message sent to his phone on the incident was also not replied to as of the time of filing this report.

Monday’s incident occurred barely a day after the men of the Oodua Peoples Congress and other vigilante groups arrested and handed over notorious Fulani warlord Iskilu Wakili to the police.

Before Wakili’s arrest, farmers and residents of Ayete, Kajola and other neighbouring villages in Ibarapaland lived in perpetual fear of the notorious warlord who has been accused of displacing them from their farms, kidnapping their rich men and raping their women.
