A man whose name is yet to be confirmed, has been beheaded in Ekiti state on Wednesday, after a reprisal attack over the shooting of one Seyi Oladipo which occurred last week. Reports say that unknown persons had trailed the victim, who was a farmer from Orisunmibare, to his farm where he was decapitated and his hands were also cut off. During the fight, the Asiwaju of Orisunmibare, Chief Segun Akanbi, was also said to have been inflicted with machete wounds by suspected Ayede youths who accused him of firing the shot that killed Oladipo.
Explaining the situation, traditional ruler, (Oba) Adamo Babalola, claimed that the perpetrators of the attack are from Ayede who are now launching sporadic attacks on Orisunmibare in a bid to take over the land. Babalola, who described the victim’s death as unfortunate, has called on the warring people to embrace peace.
The monarch said: “Orisunmibare is a settlement under Itaji and is more than 10km from Ayede; Ayede people just went there one morning on rampage and the scuffle led to the death of somebody from Ayede. “But yesterday, an Orisunmibare subject was killed inside his farm and he was beheaded. The Asiwaju of Orisunmibare was macheted and beaten
to coma and was declared dead by Ayede youths.
“The Ayede people were singing that they had killed Asiwaju Orisunmibare but he has been taken to the hospital where he is still under observation. We have been experiencing sporadic attacks from Ayede people and they have been threatening our peace since then.
“The police have been trying to maintain peace but we are disturbed by sporadic attacks especially the ones carried out on the farm. Orisunmibare has been there for many years and the land is under Itaji.”

Confirming the death, Police Spokesman, Mr Alberto Adeyemi , said investigation was still ongoing. He promised to release the name of the victim after he receives a formal report from the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the area.
Adeyemi said: “It is true that somebody was beheaded and the mutilated body was found on the farm. “Since the crisis started, two persons have been charged to court while Akanbi too will be charged to court immediately he leaves the hospital.”
