It was learnt that the two victims were shot dead on their farm by suspected Fulani herdsmen on Friday, leading to a protest by residents in the community.

Reacting to the incident when he visited the families of the victims on Sunday, Fayemi shielded away from referring to the suspected attackers with the widely known nomenclature of ‘Fulani herdsmen’.

The Governor labelled the killers as ‘Bororo herdsmen’ and assured the victims’ families that perpetrators will be brought to book.

“Yesterday, two of our farmers from Isaba Ekiti, Mr Toyin Akeju known locally as Jisoro and Mr Yusuf Onuche were found dead on the farms with wounds from gunshots suspected to have been fired by Bororo herdsmen. This, understandably, generated a lot of anger in the community,” Fayemi said in a tweet on Sunday.

“This morning, I visited the families of the deceased in the community. In offering commiserations of the government and all our people, I reassured them that we will get to the bottom of this sad occurrence and bring all the criminals involved to book.

“This is one killing too many and we must do all we can to protect all citizens. May the souls of the departed rest in peace. Amen.”

We learnt that ‘Bororo’ is a word commonly used by the Yorubas to describe light skinned members of the Fulani clan.

Meanwhile, a notorious Fulani herdsman terrorising Oyo communities, Iskilu Wakili, has been arrested after a gun battle with OPC members.
