The Ogun State police command has arrested a herder Muhammad Garba, for allegedly killing a farmer identified as Segun Akinlade in Imala community of Abeokuta North Local Government Area.

The herder reportedly got into a fight with the farmer who met him grazing his cows at his newly-cleared farmland.

Police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi who confirmed the incident said the suspect attacked the farmer with a cutlass after being struck by a stone fired from a catapult the farmer used in scaring him.

"In order to chase him away, he used a catapult to scare the intruder, but the catapult stone hit the herdsman on the forehead.

“This infuriated the suspect who brought out a cutlass to fight the deceased who was also with a cutlass,” the police spokesman said.

“The two of them used cutlass on each other resulting to the death of the deceased. The corpse of deceased has been deposited in the mortuary for autopsy,”
he said.

“On getting to the scene, the corpse of the deceased was met on the ground while the suspect who also sustained machete cut injuries was identified and promptly arrested,” Mr Oyeyemi added.

Garba has been transferred to homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
