The incident, which has created tension in the agrarian community, was said to have occurred on Friday evening, when the farmers were said to have had a confrontation with the herders which turned out to be bloody. A resident of the town confirmed that one of the victims was popularly known as Jisoro while the other was a security guard with a  construction company. 

The herders were said to have fled after killing the victims. Speaking further on the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti Command, ASP Sunday Abutu, said crisis between the farmers and herders led to the death of the two persons.



Abutu stated that it was a confrontation between the farmers and people suspected to be Fulani herdsmen called Bororo, who were alleged to have been terrorising the Ipao-Oke Ako-Irele axis of the council area.   

Abutu added that the deceased’s  corpses have been recovered and deposited in the morgue at Ikole General Hospital. He said: “There was a crisis  between some farmers and  Bororo herders .



In the process, there were casualties.  “The police were contacted and operatives have been deployed to that axis to maintain peace. “Meanwhile investigation has already commenced to unravel the reason for the crisis and to ensure that culprits are brought to book. “Corpses of the victims had  already been  deposited in the morgue”. 

Abutu said the Police Commissioner, Ekiti Command, Mr. Babatunde Mobayo, called for calm , saying  his men are on the trail of the suspected killers.



The Commander of Amotekun Corps in Ekiti State, Brig Gen. Joe Komolafe, said the victims were declared missing on Friday , having gone to farm and refused to  return home, which  fueled speculation that something terrible must have happened to them.

Akomolafe said the incident was reported to the police and Amotekun, who assembled their operatives and went to their farm where the victims were found dead. “Upon inquiry, we learnt that the victims fought with the Bororo herders for coming to harvest Bee’s honey in their farms on Wednesday, which degerated to exchange of fisticuffs. “In a reprisal attack, the Bororo herders were said to have come back to the farm again on Friday and shot the two men dead”

Fayemi believes there is no /Fulani herdsmen problem in Ekiti state and seems to be giving them an open arms welcome.  Lets see how the family of the deceased and other farmers in the states likes Fayemis stance and what this incidence will do to the morale of the farmers in the state and the resultant effect on Farming and cost of food items in the state .  . Those criminals need to go back to the north to feed their cattle., You cant be briinging your cattle to the south to destroy the farms while selling your beef at exchorbitant prices to Southerners and even decide to blockage food items grown in the North coming down south .  This strategy of starving Southerners is criminal
