How herdsmen killed Akeredolu’s aide’s cousin

The Senior Special Assistant to the Ondo State Governor on New Media, Gani Muhammed Ajowa has narrated how  four men suspected to be herdsmen reportedly killed his 48yr-old cousin, Dayo Ibiye.

Ibiye was killed on Friday in his  farm at Ajowa Akoko in Akoko North west local government of Ondo state.

Gani Mohammed said the fulani herdsmen and his cousin were involved in serious altercation yesterday when the herdsmen started grazing on farmlands in the area.

According to him, Ibiye warned them not to encroach on his farm but the herders insisted on grazing on his farm, claiming that the farm and the planted crops belonged to “everyone”.

It was gathered that he was attacked with cutlass but they didn’t succeed, forcing the four herders to strangulate him when they could not overpower or kill him with cutlass and gun.

Gani Mohammed said “the herdsmen came back today (Friday) and attacked him with different weapons but when they realised that he was not affected, they strangled him to death.”
