Some suspected dangerous Fulani Herdsmen have gruesomely killed a young man and local government worker identified as Ademiju Adenipekun around Gbogan Area, Aye Daade Local government, Osun State yesterday.
It was learnt that the deceased was travelling to Ibadan, Oyo State, in an unregistered Toyota Corolla car driven by one Ismaila Olayiwola, when the incident happened.
Sources said the herdsmen fired shots at the vehicle, one of which hit Adenipekun in the head.
Ademiju Adenipekun was said to be a native of Osu in Atakumosa West LG of the State.
A security source near the scene of the incident, who preferred not to be named, said, “The man was rushed to a Catholic hospital in Oluyoro Apomu by the men of the Operation Puff Adder, who responded to a distress call. The man was confirmed dead by a doctor at the hospital.”
The source added that a search of the adjoining bush by the Operation Puff Adder personnel led to the arrest of three disabled persons.
“They were reasonably suspected to be accomplices of the hoodlums. They are already in police custody,” the source added.
The state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Ige, confirmed the arrest of some suspects and directed diligent investigation of the incident, saying the police would ensure that the perpetrators were brought to book.
