Pandemonium broke out in Adao community in Alabata area of Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State after two suspected herdsmen allegedly stabbed a 49-year-old farmer, identified as Rafiu Showemimo, to death.

It was gathered that the heinous act was perpetrated on Sunday when the deceased was on his way back home from his farm when the suspected herdsmen accosted him for no reason, overpowered him and stabbed him in the neck.

The herdsmen reportedly abandoned him after reportedly waiting for him to bleed to death.

A 76-year-old man had escaped death after suspected herdsmen attacked him in the head, two weeks ago.

The man had gone into a coma but was revived at the hospital two days after the attack.

Attempts to get reaction from the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, failed.

He could not be reached as of the time of filing this report.

However, the Olu of Alabata, Chief Sanusi Waheed, who oversees the affected Adao community as one of his consenting communities, stressed the need for quick government’s intervention to abort the plans of the youths to foment trouble. He added that the herders had crossed their boundaries.

Waheed said, “The Fulani have crossed their boundaries and we can’t condone their excesses anymore, there is a need for an urgent intervention of the government in the Fulani/herdsmen problems in this community and country. We would do all within our powers in communicating our plight to the government.”

When our correspondent visited the community, the youths were sighted standing at strategic points in their numbers and armed with local guns, cutlasses and charms.
