Commotion In Ondo As Fulani Herdsmen Kill 67-Year-Old Woman, Cut Off Her Private Part
Aside the destruction of over 200 hectares of farmlands by the herdsmen’s cattle, of concern was the cold blooded murder of one female farmer Patience Salami said to be about 67 years old. After killing her, the herdsmen reportedly cut her body into pieces. They then carted away her tongue, heart, private part and breasts.
The incident, it was learnt, took place after most of the residents had travelled to celebrate the yuletide outside the community. Sunday Vanguard gathered that the herdsmen’s cows not only had a field day eating up the crops and destroying the farmlands, the herders also settled to operate on the hapless old woman.
Speaking with Sunday Vanguard, a friend of the deceased, Madam Bolanle Raheem, 65, said the victim was gruesomely murdered and vital parts of her body taken away by the herdsmen.
“I usually leave the community on Thursday for Akure, the state capital, so that I can attend mosque on Friday”, the friend narrated. “One of the farmers called me on Saturday to say my friend had been murdered. “I rushed back to the community to behold the dismembered body of my friend. “The activities of the herdsmen in the community are worrisome. We appeal to government and security operatives to come to our aid”.
Sunday Vanguard gathered that farmers, who resumed for work on the first week of January, were devastated by the level of destruction in their farms.
