A farmer of Igbo-Ori in the Yewa community of Ogun State, Ajoke Ishola, have been abducted and killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
It was gathered that Ishola’s body was discovered by angry residents on Tuesday as the assailants dumped her corpse behind former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s farm along Oke-Ori community.
It was reported that Ishola was abducted around 11 am on Monday, before she was found dead the following day.
A source who spoke with SaharaReporters noted that Governor’s promise on security has not translated into improved security as security operatives are feared to also be supporting the herdsmen and therefore turning a blind eye to their activities.
“The mama (Ajoke) was abducted on Monday by suspected Fulani herdsmen. She was on a motorcycle going to her farm. They attacked the motorcycle, shot dead the okada rider (commercial motorcyclist) and took her away. They had promised to strike our community and people already knew their plans. We found the lifeless body of mama inside the bush around 7pm on Tuesday.”
“She was dumped behind Obasanjo farm along Oke-Irori village. The Oodua Peoples’ Congress members were involved in the search and helped to discover the body. The Fulani herdsmen secretly dumped her body and fled,” the source said.
“One Fulani man simply called Orebe is strongly suspected. We have informed the police, but they said they would come to the community later to remove the corpse. That is all the police can do,” another resident noted.
