A yet to be identified Fulani herdsman on Tuesday reportedly hacked a farmer in Ijabe, Osun State, identified as Ridwan, to death.

Ridwan was said to be working on his farm at Bole village along Iba Road when the herdsman attacked him.

A source in Ijabe town told our correspondent that Ridwan had misunderstanding with the herdsman that killed him sometime last year.

The source said the deceased had accused the herdsman of grazing his cattle on his farm, adding that the duo had a frosty relationship since the incident happened.

He said, “After the Fulani man had perpetrated the act, and the news of the attack filtered into town, some residents mobilised to the settlement of the Fulani herders and seized three people, including the man accused of committing the crime.

“The three people were beaten to a pulp and were later handed over to the police in Okuku division.”

When contacted, spokesperson for the Osun Police Command, Yemisi Opalola, asked for more time before reaction.
