Suspected Fulani herdsmen have beheaded an elderly farmer identified as Mustapha, alias Bebe Jeje, in his farm at Iseyin, Oyo State.
Disclosing this, President-General of Agbekoyas Worldwide, Kamoru Okiki Aremu, said the herdsmen, who struck over the weekend, also injured the farmer’s son who was with him on the farm.
Speaking with Vanguard, Aremu said the herdsmen also destroyed crops in the farm.
Aremu urged the federal government and the state Governor, Abiola Ajimobi to immediately arrest and prosecute the culprits.
He said failure to arrest the culprits, family of the deceased would declare war on herdsmen all over Oyo State.
Aremu said, ”We are grieving. These herdsmen went to Baba Jeje’s farm, beheaded 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 federal government 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.”
