A shepherd kills a farmer Osun from the Fulani settlement captured by the youth
An unidentified Fulani shepherd reportedly raped a farmer in Ijab, Osun State, who was identified as Ridwan, to death Tuesday.
Ridwan is said to have been working on his farm in Bole village on Iba Road when he was attacked by a shepherd.
A source in Ijab told our reporter that Ridwan had a misunderstanding with the pastor who killed him last year.
The source said the deceased accused the shepherd of grazing livestock on his farm, adding that they had a freezing relationship following the incident.
He said: “After a Fulani man committed the act and news of the attack spread throughout the city, some residents mobilized to the Fulani shepherds settlement and kidnapped three people, including a person accused of a crime.
“These three people turned into a bowl and then turned over to the police at the Okuku station.”
When contacted, a spokesman for the Osun Police Department Yemisi Opalola asked for more time to react.
