An elderly farmer was killed by herdsmen in his farm at Iseyin, Oyo State.
His son, who was with him in the farm, was also said to have been injured by the herdsmen who also destroyed crops in the farm. The deceased, identified as Mustapha, alias Bebe Jeje, was said to be a gentle man who was very popular at Iseyin.
While reacting to the development, the President-General of Agbekoyas Worldwide, Kamoru Okiki Aremu, said unless the FG and Governor Abiola Ajimobi immediately arrest and prosecute the culprits, the Agbekoyas would declare war on herdsmen all over Oyo State.
”We are grieving. These herdsmen went to Baba Jeje’s farm, killed him and also injured his son who was with him. We have had enough of these herdsmen; we are Agbekoyas and we don’t look for trouble.
But for this that had just happened, we have sent all our members to comb the bushes for any herdsmen and deal decisively with them. If the FG and Governor Ajimobi fail to bring these people to justice, we are going to handle them in our own way. We are not afraid of anybody.”
